Rory Stewart honors his extraordinary father's long life in this touching evocation of familial love. He writes with wit and charm and narrates with a Scot's lilt that makes the listener convinced that only he could narrate this audiobook. Focusing on a walk on Hadrian's Wall and other jaunts in Scotland and England, he traces the far-flung relationship between him and his father, a soldier, diplomat, and spy. Stewart's sprightly travel story shifts back and forth from a historical narrative to a deeply personal work. His narrative art shines in performing old poems and songs, and he sings a reel or two, as well. The highlight, though, is his poignant descriptions of the father-son walks, talks, and trips, which make this audiobook unique. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
