Athene -The Odyssey Continues picks up where the first volume (not now available) left off, with the pair moored at Lichfield. It follows them through two more excitement packed, year-long cruises around England's Waterways.
The quirky style remains the same, new canals are explored and a rich fund of witty anecdotes flow from the author's exuberant pen. The telling quips, the passionate asides, the fraught experiences, are all recounted with the intimacy of a fireside chat. A rich vein of humour pulses through its pages but the writer never shrinks from making serious, heartfelt comments if he is so moved!
