"Hillwalking is well written, emotionally involving, gently educational, spiritually accurate, and please excuse me but I feel like going for a walk now. Five stars." -Self-Publishing Review

What could be better: There are enough grammatical errors to warrant another pair of eyes taking a look at the book. Ms. Ridenour is a good writer, so I think these are just errors that she missed as she made revisions, the kind of errors that someone else would catch, but the author would miss. I also had trouble visualizing some of the architectural detail of the churches at Glendalough, where much of the story takes place. The author is probably very familiar with Glendalough and didn't realize that she was not giving a reader who has never been there enough information to "see" what her characters were seeing. Although I like the book, these are things that occasionally sent me back to reread sentences to parse through the grammatical errors, to reread descriptive paragraphs to see if I could better understand what she was describing. The book loses one star because of these problems. It gains one star over these problems because the characters and their situations are so interesting.
