I do not believe this product is an original Cath Kidston phone cover. The quality is awful, will not purchase again.

Such a wonderful book describing life in the 50's as a midwife working in the London docklands. Whilst the TV series has been produced to display a certain amount of pre-watershed charm and nostalgia, Jennifer Worth' s book is much more gritty. I am very glad my babies were born in the 1990's!

4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle read, 10 Feb. 2013

An enjoyable, but not challenging read. I found this novel quite hard to get into, as it flipped between Agnes in the present, and her troubled past. However the pace of the story accelerated towards the end of the book, with a most surprising twist at the end.

This review is from: Time's Echo (Kindle Edition)
As the proud owner of a new kindle fire, I was desperate to get reading on this new e-reader. But as a newcomer to the concept of e-books I struggled, missing the physicality of a book, that is until I downloaded Time's Echo.

The story shifts between Hawise, living in Tudor York, and Grace, a survivor of the Boxing Day tsunami. The book narrates the lives of both women, through Hawise's haunting of Grace. By her haunting of Grace, Hawise's spirit finally manages to find peace, after her brutal death by drowning, accused of being a witch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Honesty, 17 Feb. 2008
This review is from: On The Edge: My Story (Hardcover)
Having read this book for a second time in three days, I am stunned by the power and honesty in the writing of both Richard and Mindy. The first few chapters of the book, written by Richard, offer a valuable insight into a man who loves life, machines, speed, thrills and most importantly, Mindy and their two little girls.

Life takes a dramatic turn after the crash and Mindy's account of her bedside vigil with Richard is beautifully written, heart-wrenchingly honest, painful, funny and poignant, as she recounts every tiny step Richard makes from coma to recovery. As someone who has sat in that chair next to the hospital bed of a seriously ill loved-one, I identify completely with her metaphorical elastic band, pulling her back to Richard every time she ventured to the coffee machine in the hospital. Without doubt her love played a huge part in Richard's healing.

Richard also writes candidly about his slow, painful and frightening recovery. His brutal honesty of how his brain injury affected him is humbling, and only serves to remind me of how precious and vital our consciousness and cognitivity are. I had no idea how terrified and confused brain injured patients can be. I admire enormously the courage and determination shown by Richard, who with the constant love and support of Mindy and his family, managed to gradually claw himself back through recovery, and most importantly enjoy life once again as a husband dad, son, brother, friend, colleague.

Thank you to both of you - brilliant.
