‘Beyond Boundaries’ by Des Kearns
They say that everybody has a book in them which in turn means that everybody
should be in a book. Sadly, it takes a long time for people to realise that they are
able to write their story. Happily, the longer we wait the more they have to tell and
this is such a case. The story of an amazing and interesting life with lots of very
different experiences, many of them at sea.
Writers are called ‘word smiths’ and Des has perfected his craft, wielding his
hammer skilfully to shape his words on a paper anvil. Not only has he benefited from
many years of report writing to become a good writer, but he has also mastered the
art of the storyteller by building his paragraphs to give the punch line its maximum
effect. A good book should make you laugh and cry aplenty and this one does not
disappoint in this respect. Interspersed with substantiating photographs it is a brilliant
story which is hard to put down. Reviewing books such as this is a great pleasure!

Amazing mate. Can’t put it down. Very proud to know you. Gotta say that integrity
shines through as an underlying motif.
A book to be read slowly and digested.
