5.0 out of 5 stars this book could change the way you view the world, 29 Aug 2013

and it's not often you can say that about a book! Great inspirational stories about the effect of charitable giving. Not only on the recipients but on the benefactors. There are some extraordinary people about, who have made a great difference to society and who derive huge pleasure from it. It has some very good advice and tips on how to get started. Spread the word!

Good , unusual,satisfying story with lots of interesting and believable characters. The protagonists get more interesting as it goes along. Refreshingly different.Heartbreaking at times but ultimately very enjoyable

3.0 out of 5 stars Very corny love story, 1 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only thing that sets it apart is that the love affair is between 60 year olds. Story is not believable and writing is weak. The fact that so many people have read it says more about a longing for romance amongst women of this age than the quality of the novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing, 18 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author is at least honest enough to admit that she fell out with VW in the Preface... and it shows! It's so sour it leaves a nasty taste in the mouth! Practically every disparaging adjective in the dictionary is used to describe Vivienne so this book certainly won't appeal to her fans!

You can see why VW didn't want to work with this author. And it should have been heavily edited. Far too long and far too much repetition. Typos too eg Murray Blewitt is also spelt as Bluitt!

Not worth the investment in time or money!

4.0 out of 5 stars great read, 13 May 2012
This review is from: Headhunters (Kindle Edition)
Very clever - keeps you guessing till the end. My first ebook purchase but was shocked by the number of typos (hence 4 stars not 5) ! Surely Random House could afford some proof readers!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed!, 25 Nov 2011
Yes great pics but you can't read the text! A comfortable font is 12 point - I think this must be about 6. The designer should be shot! The type is so small you really can't read it - and I"m NOT exaggerating. I have a large collection of art books and this is the first time I've had this problem. Really very disappointing . If you buy this book buy a magnifying glass with it. I asked for it for my birthday and regret it!

What an amazingly brave woman, and this is such a sad story. Very well researched and really makes the heroic events of SOE come alive.

but it didn't work. If anything I think it may create more lines as it makes your face crease up!
