My Fathers' Daughter
My Fathers' Daughter
by Hannah Pool
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and well written - joy and pain, 15 Sep 2011
This review is from: My Fathers' Daughter (Paperback)
Hannah's journey is amazing - her writing is honest and skillful. This is an essential read if you want to know how being adopted feels - the inner conflict and guilt mixed with joy and gratitude.
For me, this has some of the best descriptions of how it feels to be adopted - some of her observations pierced me to the core. I have discussed this book with friends who are adopted and they agree - joy and pain. At last I have found someone who could put into words how it feels to be adopted.

2.0 out of 5 stars ??, 15 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Cupboard (Paperback)
So disappointed with this book as Tremain is one of my favourite authors. I really couldn't get into this book at all - ploughed through it though. Perhaps I didn't care for the characters but it is well written.

1.0 out of 5 stars worst toaster, 13 April 2010
I never thought I could get so annoyed by a toaster!! This is so slow to brown the bread (which it only does in the centre anyway!!!) that it dries it to a crisp. Absolutely awful. Worst toaster ever. I would give it 0 stars if this were an option.
