3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing., 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't remember why I chose this book, it might have been the food angle that interested me, but story was disjointed and not really connected to specific historical characters lost credibility

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 28 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having listened to this cd at least 4 times, very few words or phrases have stuck in my memory.
If you aren't musical or don't have an auditory memory there are few hooks to hang the words or phrases on.
There is no scaffold of grammar or structure to hang to the memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really insightful and thought provoking., 8 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cain's Legacy (Hardcover)
I bought Cain's Legacy after reading a review in "The Times", not having a good relation ship with my own siblings. The examples of sibling rivalry from Genesis shows how deeply ingrained is the unspoken issue and how parents through commission or omission set the framework for family relationships.
Anybody who has problem siblings will find this book opens deep insights on these complex and deep rooted issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well planned Lent course for house group, 4 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looking for suitable material for a mixed house group that meets the needs of people of different ability can be a challenge.
After looking at a number of other courses for this lent we found that this book is both topical, relevant for different 24/7 lifestyles and callings, and biblically sound.
Looking forward to sharing this book with our group.

5.0 out of 5 stars review for the child madonna, 31 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Child Madonna (Hardcover)
I only bought this book as it is written by my name sake, and found it a well crafted and interesting read. Bringing insight and imagination to a familiar story, I was captivated by the plot, characters and finished the book wanting more. So far the best read of the year.
