Our customer reviews

I was given this book as a present last Christmas (yes it was a gift!) and was skeptical I would enjoy it as I don't generally read this genre however, from the first to last sentence I found this novel captivating. This story has an excellent moral and a well thought out storyline which I could not predict - give it a go!show more
by Christie Barker
This book is not for someone who does not enjoy large chunks of meaningless description. The start is filled with metaphors and similies who have no effect upon setting the scene and are rather boring. I found it labourious to try and read this book and had to keep stopping throughout and remind myself that I should finish it really. The book does not really make sense and provides meaningless chapters time and time more
