5.0 out of 5 stars The sort of book I wish I had written, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Crying Tree (Paperback)
I have bought about 8 of these books now for friend and family presents. Bought my first copy as an easy reader from the airport and intended to laze about on the beach with it. Read the first few chapters on the plane and could not put it down! The plot centres round the murder of a 17year old boy and is written from his mother's perspective. It is not what I expected. It is not mawkish or one dimensional. It is funny, touching, surprising, gentle, vicious, thought provoking and beautifully written. Whether you are a mother or not, this book takes you on an emotional journey and makes you question all manner of your own perceptions. The law, prejudice, how people behave, religion and the secrets people keep. How good people sometimes do the wrong things and how different people deal with grief. Buy this for your mother, your friends, your secret Santa, your book group, your teenage daughter and yourself! This is a brilliant book and all the copies I have bought from Amazon gave arrived in good time and were packaged professionally.
