I loved this book, I love everything about the author, I wish she was my friend/neighbour/sister!
Reminiscent of the wonderful Marian Keyes without being copycat.
Please write some more stuff soon!

I enjoyed this book. It was light hearted, funny but thought provoking. Couldn't put it down. Great tips on how easy it is to do little things for people and how it makes you feel good.

Enjoyed this book. Very well written and a few laugh out loud moments. Also liked the lay out of the book. Recommend to anyone wanting something a little bit different to read.

This book is a breath of fresh air!! It so links to the meaning of care as I suspected. Yet no tick box criteria of requirements for research!! Questions author asks serve basis for development eg not all want good deed doing and personal benefits gained by good deed provider.When I am sad, I feel nobody cares anymore; I will smile as I recall the examples eg cleaning somebody's toilet or making a student have a sandwich free when they did not want one. Thanks Judith!!

Really well written book that captures perfectly the inner battle normal people have with themselves whilst trying to live a good life. Would recommend this book to all.

I preferred the first novel, Wife in the North. This reads a bit more like a non-fiction how-to guide to do good than a novel. I found the extracts from academic or pop-psychology works on altruism a bit off-putting in a fairly easy-going novel. This is not a great work of literature, and needs to take itself less seriously! Having said that, I did enjoy it, and if you liked Wife in the North you'll probably like this.

I heard a review of this bookon Radio 4 and decidedto buy a copy. I enjoyed her description
of family life in a Northumberland village and the friends, neighbours and complete strangers
who were on the receiving end of her Good Deeds. However I did feel some of the Deeds were
a bit feeble and hardly counted, whilst her Jam Jar charity collection for her local hospice sounded
quite heroic.

Humour touched a spark of recognition and made me laugh out loud. Also very poignant in places. A book I would read again.

Judith writes from life with all its ups and downs. I like her style and sense of the ridiculous and pathos.
