Lillian Beckwith captures everything "island" with this super book. She writes in a way that you can feel you are there with the people in the story. I have nearly all her books and this one is another gem.

I am a great fan of Lillian Beckworth's stories. A Shine of Rainbows is a poignant tale which touched my heart. A worthwhile read, slightly different to many of her other work.

A powerful story with profound undercurrents of so many emotions. Lovely descriptions of the island, the sea, the seasons, and the hard core of each human personality laid down in infancy and childhood by all that has happened to them, all they've endured and from which they cannot easily escape unless a loving family breaks down the concrete.

I have just watched Canada/Ireland production of the same name. It is a fine transfer to film of her work. I hope Lillian was pleased with the film.

I liked the book but didn't realise it was a childs book. The story was short and easy to read
