Glass Half Full: Our Australian adventure is the account of a powerful and optimistic woman, who is always able to pick herself up after hardship and misadventure, and try again. The writing is such that I felt I was there with Sarah and her family in their move to Australia. I felt caught up in the atmosphere and learnt a lot about the country and Sarah herself. Well done! I'm keen to read what happened next and eagerly await Sarah's account of her adventures in France.

I enjoyed this 'no holds barred' account of one families experiences of searching for a better life in Australia. It is good to read that it isn't all Bondi and BBQ's when people decide to emigrate. The writer gave an excellent account of the way in which life has a habit of throwing in a 'googly' when it is least expected. All in all a very readable book - and interesting too.

After reading this book (Glass Half Full by Sarah Jane Butfield)I felt that it was obviously from the heart, real and honest. I find that a rare quality nowadays. Whilst describing the chapter in the family court I actually felt a lump in my throat. That has never happened to me before by just reading. This Author is good and I await any further writings.

An incredibly well written book, full of emotion, and very descriptive. I feel I have travelled this journey with Sarah and her family. It has also left me wondering what is to come next! Get writing Sarah, and thank you for sharing.
