GIVEAWAY AND REVIEW OF CORKED BY KATHRYN BOREL
About The Author-
Kathryn Borel was born in 1979 in Toronto, the daughter of a hotelier.
After several years, she became the older sister to Nico, who was named after the family cat. She spent her early years living in hotels in Paris, Bermuda, Dallas, and New Jersey, finally settling in Quebec City
In 2002 she moved to Toronto to follow a man. The relationship ended.
She continues to live in Toronto where she works at the Canadian Broadcasting Company. She has written food and wine reviews for radio and print. Her journalism includes a column which ran in the National Post under the title "Indignities." Corked is her first book.
While reading Corked, I was reminded of the trip I took with my mother to Australia in 1988. We travelled throughout the whole country in a car just like the author did with her father in France. The book was more about her father. He was obnoxious, rude and had a temper. I did not like him from the beginning, but Kathryn had a way to control him. I have always liked biographies but it took me a while to get into the story. I found the story sad and I would never like to spend any time with her father. There are more interesting books out there.If I did not have to review it, I would have not finished the book. In regard to my trip to Australia, we had a fantastic time.
