5.0 out of 5 stars A stranger in a strange land, 4 July 2007
This story is incredible!We see the all the characters mature and at the end of the book we begin to realise although Bowman thinks he is the one to save his people ,his destiny is not to be the saviour but to be saved and it is in fact Kestrel his sister must make the sacrifice instead.The penultimate chapter in the book is by far the most moving.READ IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring!, 17 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Reunited in the Desert (Hardcover)
Helle Amim is one of the bravest women I have ever heard about.Her fight just see her boys let alone have custody of them is inspiring.She accurately describes how the men in court thought she was right but the system in Saudi Arabia didn't want to know.Her struggle to cope with life inside an Islamic state where the abaya and the veil are compulsory,the worth of a woman is very low and woman are dicriminated against on a daily basis. I first heard about her when I saw her on 'This Morning' with Fern Britton and Philip Schofield.But also Helle was extremely lucky as many mothers around the world who have their children stolen by their husbands never get to see them again.

THREE CHEERS FOR HELLE AMIM!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 24 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Thief! (Paperback)
This is a story of how one girl Lydia,was deamonised and framed because of jealousy and spite.It is a gripping book and I would reccomend it to anyone who likes reading or dectective novels.I think the blurb is a bit misleading though.Lydia is a 12 year old girl who has moved from London to a town called Tarwich.She is then framed by the villain of the novel Anne Turner for stealing the Collivale cup.

Beware the end is quite mind boggling and although it is cliched it is quite surprising how Lydia finally wins the battle to prove she is innocent.
