5.0 out of 5 stars Im Just a Daydreamer !, 17 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Then And Now (Audio CD)
Yes, I am a Daydreamer, and my mind floated back to the hazy mellow days of the 70s when the world was a good place to live in as a child/teenager, and many happy hours could be spent in
your bedroom drooling at the David or Donny posters and enjoying the music that they produced. Now, all those lovely far-off
memories come flooding back with the strains and melodies of
Mr Cassidy's simplistic ballads on CD....Its quite right that he should be singing them as he is now, as we are how we are now
listening to these tunes and he is bringing them up to date
without losing too much of the sing-a-long style that we knew and loved. Could It Be Forever ? No it was just those wonderful, memorable 70s years that mean a lot to us 30 or 40 somethings, and How Can I Be Sure ? Thanks David ! You wrote or sang the songs that made Us Young Girls Cry and Old Women Happy !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intoxicating, enchanting and a jolly nice read...., 2 Jan. 2002
I'd just finished "Driving Over Lemons" and
"Extra Virgin" so wasnt sure if I was ready for
another "feel good in the Med" type book...but
I didnt hardly put it down over Xmas...
I was there in the overgrown pool, I felt the
warmth of the Cote d'Azur sun and could taste the
freshly baked bread drizzled with the even fresher
olive oil.... It took me far away from the dreariness and usual rituals of Xmas, to an area
rich in history, culture and a romantic hidden house just waiting to be rediscovered and loved.
It certainly appealed to me and I too, would like to see a sequel and perhaps a few photos of Michel, the dogs and the allure of Appassionata...
Is the little cottage in the grounds available as a holiday-let ??!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Earthy and historically accurate re-telling..., 21 Aug. 2000
The Arthur and Guinevere of the fairy-tale legend is firmly buried in the past, the moment you pick up Book One of this brilliant trilogy. This tale is packed full of historical earthiness and truly transports the reader back to those early years of Britain, when life was not full of gallant knights and pretty castles, but a harsh world where the British-born struggled against the invaders of the isle, the Saxons, Jutes and Angli, not forgetting the hostile North lands thrown in for good measure. The "Gwenyhfar" and "Arthur" of this tale are solid and believable - the reader cannot help but get caught in these shadowy times and catch a historical glimpse of this dark, far-away age. The characters spring to life through the pages, creating an exciting identity of their own whilst their lives are gradually mapped out through the chapters. There are no love-lorn Lancelots, no gushing Guineveres or awful Arthurs, here you can believe in an age-old legend to the extent that the myths fade, and the real history is like The Kingmaking...yours for the taking.
