Caitlin is my great niece. I hadn't seen her for a while when I discovered she had written a book! I think it is an extremely clever plot- and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that everyone should read!, 5 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the most interesting, informative book I have read in a long time. The son, David, has autism and the book is written by his father, giving an account of his son's journey through life. It details the highs and lows of the family's life with David. Two things shine through this story- the love for David and real obstacles the family had to overcome. If you cannot make a child conform, you work from his perspective, and change your thinking! Not an easy thing to do, but this family did it!
If you are unsure about autism, read this book, it will open your mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read, 4 Mar. 2016

This was a very interesting read, and brought home just how dreadful and dangerous the war was, especially for the brave people working to save others. A gripping story, sad and yet hopeful for those who were helped to escape.
Well written, and thought-provoking.


Geisha of Gion: The True Story of Japan's Foremost Geisha (Memoir of Mineko Iwasaki)
Geisha of Gion: The True Story of Japan's Foremost Geisha (Memoir of Mineko Iwasaki)
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A different story altogether!, 23 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting story, clarifying some of the myths surrounding the mysterious lifestyle of a geisha. The Japanese names and terms were a little baffling to a western reader. However, if you are interested in Japanese culture and a totally different lifestyle, this will be the book for you. Totally alien to our way of life, bordering on abuse in our eyes, possibly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for fans of Eva Cassidy, 21 Oct. 2015

A tragic story sensitively told. This book reveals all kinds of problems this brilliant singer experienced. It also shows what a complex person Eva Cassidy was. For any fan of her music this book gives a real insight into her very short tragic life.


The Secret Life of Bees
The Secret Life of Bees
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book- on the list of 'Musts' to read!, 15 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a brilliant story that really touches on so many emotions on so many levels. It was a well constructed plot that leaves the reader wanting to know what will happen to the main character and her black male friend next. Is there a sequel to this brilliant tale? The plot was superbly intertwined with the life of the bees. The story of life for black people persecuted by white is a strong theme, among many other serious issues. It is a book that is not to be missed. Heart-rending, beautifully sculpted with totally believable characters. I was so hoping Lily did not pull the trigger- read it to find out!!!!


Knitted Bears: All dressed up! (Twenty to Make)
Knitted Bears: All dressed up! (Twenty to Make)
by Val Pierce
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A super collection of bears and costumes., 23 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a lovely little book for a knitter of toys-whether you knit for charity or for others. I particularly like the idea of a Christmas bear. My daughter is keen for me to knit a Halloween bear, although she would prefer a white bear. The beauty of these patterns is that you canmix and match colours and costumes.
My Granddaughter loves the ballet bear and my other Granddaughter wants me to adapt the bikini bear to make her a 'gymnastics' bear! Plenty of ideas in this little book to keep me busy for a while!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars How will it end? Read it to find out!, 23 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sad but pausible wartime story, highlighting the dangers of the resistance. A truly engaging story with strong characters. the 'plot'(excuse the pun), is detailed and full of tragedy. I had to complete this read at 3 a.m. to discover what happened to the characters, it was a compelling story. This book reflects the horrors and experiences of war , and how it was possible to sometimes overcome adversity during that time. A great read.
