Author Lyndon Patrick Berchy preaches a message of wise choices and anti-materialism, returning to what is truly important in life and developing inner power. Both religious and spiritual, there are lessons that any kind of reader seeking faith can take from this book, which weaves its ideals amongst some really fascinating stories, The vistas of many lands are described beautifully in the author’s smooth prose, and I felt that the narrative style was very confident. This engenders confidence in both the message and the reader themselves, and as the message expands and grows deeper with each part of the author’s personal journey, so we too are encouraged to take a journey of our own. Overall, I would recommend The Flight of Kurrawurra: An Australian Odyssey for readers seeking a spiritually-linked memoir that has meaning, passion, and emotion from cover to cover.
