~ You’ll be into this if: you need some wisdom in your life ~
My mum describes this book as ‘it’s as if a wise old man is chatting to you over a cuppa’ and I think she’s hit the nail on the head. A fortunate life is the autobiography of Australian man,A.B Facey, which when reading it you wouldn’t believe it was a true story. Through the hardships of poverty, war, love and loss, this incredible man faces the end of his life truly believing he has had the most fortunate life. Whenever I’m stressed about dumb stuff, which happens more than I’d like to admit, I think about this book and this man and I feel pretty bloody stupid.
