Reviews

Fair

(3 stars)

A fairly good book that seemed dated with characters that I found difficult to sympathise with. It was probably the reader who brought the book to life.

(5 stars)

Loved this book! So satisfying. Reader was a bit rough at first, but quickly became excellent. Thank-you, Margaret, for your work.

Nicely read, and not just a boring love story. This story hits on at least 4 of today’s social issues.
