Could not put this down. A very very moving story. Gritty sad and makes one wonder at the cruelty of the human race.
A story of a very brave young lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making dolls clothes, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic book full of patterns for all types of dolls including some patterns to make rag dolls, and actual childrens clothes. Brought many books on dolls clothes and this is by far the best. Worth buying even full price. However Amazon is far cheaper recommend and give 5 stars.

Brought this on a whim. Excellent plot and well written. Glad I brought it and will read everything he writes. It kept me hooked till the last page and I like a book to get my brain working trying to work out who did it. The characters are well thought out and the plot twists and turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anne The Green Gables Complete Collection, 10 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this collection having seen it on TV.

It is the best series of books I have ever read. I am 60 years old and was entertained from page I to the very end. Its is hours and hours of reading. Talk about value for money. I laughed, I cried, at times I could not put it down. The T V series is very very loosely based on the first book. The rest is totally different. How I wish they would make a new series and follow the book totally and all 10 of them. These books have every element of a good story whether you are a child reading it or an adult. My 10 year old grandchild is reading it and loving it. She has learnt a great deal about WW1 from it too as did I.
I throughly recommend buying this set of books. I am only sorry that I have now read the final page.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy for your Overlocker, 1 May 2015

Overlocker technique Manual.
This book is perfect if you own an overlocker / serger and are a beginner. It has clear instructions and pictures detailing everything you need to know to make full use of these wonderful machines. In particular it shows close up how to thread them, they are not easy to thread until you get the knack of it. This book made it so simple to do and saved me hours of frustration trying to work out how. My overlocker can do far more than just overlock the edges of fabric. This is the best book I have seen on the market for this type of machine and I looked at 6 others before buying this one. I am well satisfied with it. If you dress make and make curtains you cannot be without one of these machines if you want a professional finish to your work.

5.0 out of 5 stars custard tarts and broken hearts, 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful read. It has everything a good story should have, it made me laugh smile and weep in parts. So well written that the characters come to life. I felt that world war 1 was real and for the first time realised how truly awful it was, it hit me harder than seeing it on the TV . I would recommend this book whole heartedly to anyone to read.

I most certainly will now read any other books this very talented lady has written. Thank you Mary for a wonderful few hours of reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars not a good read, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is not what I expected at all. It is one chapter of a very explicit sexual encounter and i was disgusted by it. If i had actually paid for this book I would be very very angry. I love reading about the Amish and never ever would have expected to find this sort of porn in a simple Amish story. It isnt even a story, its just a chapter .
