As someone who has lived in Italy, I found fond memories in the writing of James' work. The narrative takes the reader on a journey with non-tornado expert and his girlfriend while sharing the revelations that seem to only occur when we've left our day-to-day troubles behind. The strongest aspect of this book, other then the writing itself, is how the moments and lessons grow organically. Not Afraid of the Fall
is an enjoyable work which will bring a smile to your face.
