Product description

Review

'A moving and mostly gentle tale about age, family, love, loss and secrets... As each strand of the story is secured and resolved, the message is about the priority of family and the power of love...In Lola's Secret, as in her other novels, McInerney's aim is unerringly true.' --Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin (Australia

'McInerney's cast of a thousand chatty voices is etched effortlessly and resonantly by the end of chapter two and has been described as "comfort reading" and "warm buttered toast". Except McInerney's protagonist is no pushover and there are no honey-dripped endings. This is full of grains of truth: it is never too late to live, but you are never too old to learn.' --Australian Women's Weekly

Review

"The book is hugely entertaining but also reminds us of the importance of thinking of others as McInerney draws beautiful and very convincing portraits of characters either depleted by the demands of modern life, desperately lonely or in need… But the best thing about this book is its sense of humour. Lola has a wacky sense of style and a shameless tongue. Her advice to her shy juniors will have readers blushing and her unorthodox approach to family problems will have them in stitches. McInerney is the mistress of the plot and weaves about five into this fine textured read." (The Sunday Tasmanian)

"A delicate treat… Lola’s Secret is a lovely, gentle story of a family, a Christmas, love and different kinds of adventure." (The Courier Mail)
