Journal Entry 1 by sing-song from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, April 9, 2011
I found myself laughing at his descriptions of how the kids in the orphanage coped and related to him. It is amazing how a person can become passionate about something that they first approach as a lark. And he found love to boot! I think fate, or God had a plan for him.

Product Description
Amazon.ca
In search of adventure, twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe, a journey that began with a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children’s Home, an orphanage in war-torn Nepal. Conor was initially reluctant to volunteer, unsure whether he had the proper skill, or enough passion, to get involved in a developing country in the middle of a civil war. But he was soon overcome by the herd of rambunctious, resilient children who would challenge and reward him in a way that he had never imagined. When Conor learned the unthinkable truth about their situation, he was stunned: The children were not orphans at all. Child traffickers were promising families in remote villages to protect their children from the civil war—for a huge fee—by taking them to safety. They would then abandon the children far from home, in the chaos of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. For Conor, what began as a footloose adventure becomes a commitment to reunite the children he had grown to love with their families, but this would be no small task. He would risk his life on a journey through the legendary mountains of Nepal, facing the dangers of a bloody civil war and a debilitating injury. Waiting for Conor back in Kathmandu, and hopeful he would make it out before being trapped in by snow, was the woman who would eventually become his wife and share his life’s work. Little Princes is a true story of families and children, and what one person is capable of when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds. At turns tragic, joyful, and hilarious, Little Princes is a testament to the power of faith and the ability of love to carry us beyond our wildest expectations. --

Sing-song, I am so sorry to be so grabby! But, I had this on my Amazon order form and am so excited to get this to read!

I will put it to the top of my Mount TBR so it can get back to the group for further circulation!

Thanks a ton!

This book had everything! Adventure, character development, inspiration, humour and love!!! Truly one of the best books I've read in years - an non-fiction, to boot!

Thank you, sing-song for letting me snatch this book almost out of your hands at the meet-up! I've read it first so it can find another reader that will be touched as much as I was.

I regret putting off reading this book until now. It was amazing. It's hard to believe it's all true; it reads like a really good fiction book. It was great to see how one person can really make a difference in the world.

Picked up at the July Calgary BC get together

Journal Entry 10 by Eri-Cherry at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, March 29, 2013
What a truly amazing journey from start to finish. The topic in the book is serious, but the true story is so well written that rather than feel depressed you feel hopeful. Many times this book made me laugh out loud on the train and at home when I was reading it! The descriptions of people and their lives really manages to make a connection with you, even though their lives are very different. I've already recommended it to others, and will continue to recommend it to everyone I know.

Thanks for sharing this special book with me!!
