3.0 out of 5 stars Nice material but shrinks, 1 May 2016

Nice but shrinks massively after one (delicate) handwash. The shrinkage is both in length and in waist size. Nice material though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous, 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a treasure of a book. Yes, there's plenty to improve but the fact that I read this well into the early hours is proof that it's captivating. It has been quite a while since I read a book that captured my imagination and really made me feel for the characters. The world of the 19th century Scottish islanders and their plight was very masterfully drawn by Elisabeth Gifford.
I found the modern storyline slightly less interesting personally but just as well written, a young girl going through such a terrible childhood and still managed to surround herself with good, healthy people.
I think my main gripe is that I felt there are two many storylines, two many things no one in the future storyline would ever learn about so all of them felt a bit disconnected. For example, Moira's story is the shining light of the novel. Such a tragic story of displacement and such a very accurate description that could very much apply to the current issues of displaced populations in places like Syria. But none of it actually relates to the other main storylines, the modern tale of Ruth, an orphan who moves back to the place her mother told her she came from or the 19th account of Revd Alexander, who was obsessed with Selkies, or mermaids and whose link to Moira was initially based on her tales.
But none of that will I remember in years to come, when the only last impression this book made was of an amazing story and equally good writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 8 Jan. 2016

Very lovely backpack. Great quality leather and the fact that it's also oiled, means it's waterproof and stain proof. It is very smooth and soft leather and it shows signs that it will age very well.
Great quality and value for money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stained after first use., 8 Jan. 2016

Almost immediately took on a stain from the foundation, which I've tried getting rid of and nothing works. Cleans the brushes quite well though I'd want the ridges to be deeper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near Kate Morton quality, 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pearl Locket (Kindle Edition)
Extremely simplistic writing to begin with and there is no sense of difference in vocabulary between the 1940s storyline and a modern day teen's. Plot wise, the general idea is interesting but clues are non-existent, some chapters give you the solution straight away, some drag it out like some kind of clever tidbit when in fact it's nothing of the kind. Not to spoil anyone, I'll offer a tiny example. One of the characters saves a little girl (nothing complex about her story and completely undeveloped plot line) only to be told later on that someone with the same last name as the little girl is now a humanitarian in her 70s, a solution to a mystery no one knew was a mystery to begin with.

But apart from all that, the biggest disservice to this book is comparing it to Kate Morton. Yes, some people will buy it for this very reason. But as the book is nowhere near Kate Morton, closer to a creative writing project than Morton's novels, those same people will feel cheated and give the writer & the novel bad reviews. What's the use in that? Bad marketing for a very run of the mill novel.

There should definitely be a larger warning that you need protection (gloves, goggles etc) to use this product since it is stated on it that it's cancerogenic.

Only two layers of tulle so unless you add some more, it can only be worn as undergarment.

Very stretchy (to the point it looks as if it's made for a giant), completely shapeless and pretty bad quality.
