REVIEW: Welcome to Kamini

Are you one of those people that are caught up in the go go go of life? Taking on more work than you can handle and taking the beautiful silent moments of the world for granted? That’s Russell when we meet him; he has accomplished a lot in his career, he is financially well off but his personal relationships are suffering and he lacks joy in his life. When his wife files for divorce he decides to take a much-needed vacation.

Russell decides upon a remote location in Canada where he can golf and fish and disconnect. Early on in his trip, he realizes that he is in for more than he bargained for. Quickly as he disconnects from the “real world” he finds himself happily immersed in a slower, quieter, more peaceful existence. His focus on material goods and luxury begins to fade and he begins valuing deep relationships that he’s forming with folks who had quite recently been perfect strangers. He also finds himself connecting with nature and I strongly influenced by the Ojibwe history and culture.

This book is perfect for people who are looking for an escape read with a little adventure, a little enlightenment and a sense of hope in humanity. Seeing Russell’s easy turn from a self-centered businessman to an empathetic, connected member of this small community is uplifting.

My only small gripe was that there was a slightly too much ‘inside baseball’ about fishing for my taste, but just because I didn’t enjoy that part doesn’t mean you won’t. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to the author for a copy of this novel. All opinions are my own.
