This review is from: The Generation Club (Paperback)
The concept of this book is ingenious - a group of people, each caring for an elderly relative, drawn together by a common need. From the first page I was totally involved with these wonderfully drawn characters that make up the Generation Club. For a short while they were my close friends and I had to know what happened to each of them. At the same time I didn't want the book to finish and towards the end I only allowed myself to read a few pages at a time, spinning the story out for as long as possible. I wasn't disappointed at the end either, for the resolution was perfect. This is the book to give your best friend for Christmas and birthdays.

This is EXACTLY how I felt when reading it! I wanted to race through it, but didn't want it to end, so I took my time, even re-read a few pages when I picked it up again. The characters felt like friends to me and the story was heartening, enlightening and inspiring!
Annette Keen is an excellent writer. I've just finished reading her second book, 'Distant Cousins' and am now hankering for a third!
