8 out of 10

This was my book club's April, 2017 pick, and sparked a lot of discussion.

The novel follows 3 grieving men, spanning 100 years, but coming full circle to the "high mountains of Portugal". Chimpanzees, African missionaries, Agatha Christie mysteries, theology and going back to your family roots are all themes in this book.

If you've found this book, and are interested in BookCrossing, please do join : it's a fun way to make room on your overcrowded bookshelves, and commit Random Acts of Literacy at the same time.

Travel far, little book.
