I do always fly through a Cathy Kelly book, this one was no exception, easy to read and enjoyable protagonists. Although I do tire of the outdated dialogue that fixates on weight and appearances, especially when the characters have such grounding in much more important elements of their lives. The story overcame this by having strong themes in friendship, independence and family love

Beautifully written, dodgy Aussie accents!

I loved this book, beautiful writing and enthralling storyline, only downfall is the narrator (who has a wonderful reading voice) did not rehearse his Australian accent very well! As an Australian, hearing him speak the Aussie dialogue made me cringe and distracted me from the story at the beginning. I got over it as the novel went on and in the end I still loved the story and all other aspects of the way it was read.

Incredible story telling, eloquently written. Story leads the audience to ask more questions than there are answers but in the most intriguing way. Loved this book!
