May well have purchased this book as it does get a couple of decent reviews but since author wants a top writer (or two) to cease writing in order that the reader/customer has a choice limited to the mediocre and worse, there is no way I could ever give this author's book houseroom. Hopefully she will issue an apology.
Bought for 91 year old mother to keep her warm indoors in winter. For this type of customer elastic rather than a tie waist would be better but local alteration shop sorted this. Also great for general outdoor wear.
