Goals and Dreams

True North by Jill Ker Conway is the continuation of her story after she emigrated to the U.S.  After reading The Road from Coorain, I wanted to read about the rest of Ker’s life.  I am sorry to say I was somewhat disappointed in the second book.  The tone seemed very different and I felt the story was weighed down by long passages about women’s rights which distracted me from Ker’s life story.  I recognize her life, work, and the times in which she lived centered on this issue, but I had trouble wading through it.  It was a bit too academic for me and I did not feel Ker’s heart in the story as much as I did in the Coorain book.

All in all, I am glad I was able to read more about Ker’s life and admire all she accomplished in her life.
