Navigating Our Way Through Lockdown by Rhianne Colley is a book describing the slow emergence of the Covid 19 pandemic, and how it has produced an indelible impact on peoples' lives. This book is more of a journal, that allows the readers to dive into the author's life and inspire them to look at the positive side of the COVID 19 crisis. The author begins by giving a vivid account of when the pandemic was announced, and the start of panic buying, job losses, and the enforced restrictions that left a mark on every aspect of life and business. Bringing back forgotten skills, spending time with loved ones, breathing fresh air, and a chance for lending a helping hand - the crisis has also positive connotations attached to it, that cannot be ignored. Hence, through this journal, the author has shared her experiences during lockdown, which gave her the opportunity to experience new things as well as re-live old memories, thereby spreading a splash of positivity and a hope for betterment during tough times.
