Inside: One Woman’s Journey Through the Inside Passage, Susan Marie Conrad

Memoir & Biography, Self-Help & Motivational, Travel & Travel Guide

In the spring of 2010, with her world scaled down to an 18-foot sea kayak and the 1,200 mile ribbon of water called the Inside Passage, Susan Conrad launched a journey that took her north to Alaska. On the way, she forged friendships, lived her dream, and discovered the depths of her own strength and courage.

Inside: One Woman’s Journey Through the Inside Passage is a memoir written by the incredible Susan Marie Conrad, and throughout Inside Susan will take her readers on the journey she took in the Spring of 2010 and all the adventures that happened during this time. I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s fascinating life but I love memoirs with travel themes because the reader is whisked away on a journey and if the author of such a memoir is brilliantly descriptive about the places he and or she visits, the reader will feel as if they are right there experiencing every moment the author is. Inside written by the extraordinary Susan Marie Conrad is just this type of read as it is an incredibly powerful travel memoir that whisks the reader away to Alaska. The reader thanks to the author’s impeccable descriptions will feel as if they are right there and that is rare for an author to accomplish so the fact that Susie has shows us, readers, that she is an incredibly talented author who knows how to transfix her readers with ease. That is why I already have to implore you lovely readers to have a read of Inside because you will never come across another book like it!

Inside is a remarkable book that will take readers on an emotive and inspiring journey. Susan has written her story inside this beautiful book and in it, she will take the reader of the book on the adventure she experienced in 2010… an adventure/journey which saw her battle her way up the Inside Passage to Alaska. The reader will be granted exclusive access into her journey and all that happened along the way and readers will feel as if they are right there beside her thanks to her personal writing which feels as if she is speaking directly to you. Along the way she makes friends and finds herself as well as battle the harsh climates and through it all she survived and this is a testament to her amazing character. Susan’s journey was not an easy one, instead, it was full of many lows and terrifying, dangerous moments but Susan, despite it all, survives and continued to be positive through it all and this for me was inspiring. To read a story in which a woman goes on a journey of discovery while overcoming obstacles and survive will make every woman and man feel that they too can do it because Susan is a testament to this.

The profoundness in Susan’s story is sensational and many readers will feel a host of different emotions while reading this book because of how emotive Susan’s journey was. Susan, although experiencing hardships flawlessly inspires her readers in many ways as well as inspire different thoughts and feelings in her readers as well as compel them to read from beginning to end. I found myself reading Inside at an alarming rate because it was captivating as well as engrossing; her remarkable literature will have you turning the pages at an alarming rate, and I adored how she was able to do this. As well as Susan writing her story in an extremely compelling way, she also is excellent at describing the settings and places in this book. Susan’s beautifully descriptive writing of Alaska will make the reader feel as if they are right there; this is how I felt and because I did I felt as if I was with Susan on her journey of discovery and that for me was incredibly beautiful as well as transformative.

Susan’s story is a poignant story that is uplifting as well as entertaining, and the story managed to captivate as well as delight me from the first few pages. Inside can only be described as the perfect memoir for those that are looking for an escape and to be inspired/uplifted and Inside will provide this with its touching story and memorable people that are featured in it.

Susan Marie Conrad is the exceptional author of Inside and I admit, I am gutted that I have not discovered her book sooner! Inside is the perfect read for me as books such as this one make for the perfect escape from everyday life. Susan knows how to flawlessly transport her reader into her story as well as to the many places the reader is taken to and because her descriptions are glorious they will correctly paint a picture of the beautiful places the reader travels to with Susan and that was one of the many qualities I loved about Inside.

Overall Inside is a remarkable, memorable and inspiring story that readers are going to love so I, of course, have to award this superb book five stars! So please, if you love memoirs and inspirational stories then have a read of Inside, you will not regret it!
