Review quote

"Baby Farm is an intelligent, fascinating and witty mystery novel. Debbie Terranova is a fabulous writer." Venero Armanno

"Wow, I so loved Baby Farm and did not want it to finish. It resonated with me on so many levels but principally from having grown up in that 1970's era." PS

"Baby Farm was great. I especially enjoyed going back to the 70's and travelling the Brisbane streets in my mind. I loved the plot and was very interested in the forced adoptions as I know of the emotional pain women have experienced and also the problems adopting parents have had with their children." MW
