Simple, elegantly written and gently insightful * THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE * Perfect escapist fiction * THE TIMES * There is a timelessness to the tales, yet they are also of the moment . . . His talent is to see the god in small things * SUNDAY TIMES SCOTLAND * This is delicious, light-hearted stuff and I love it - my only criticism is that these books are just not long enough * THE LADY *
