Review quote

'The story is full of humour, but is also tinged with terrible sadness as some of the family members suffer considerable misfortunes and the inevitable demise of some characters brings you close to tears. Roberta very distinctive voice brings to life her own incredible story with passion.' -- Emma Fisher OTTAKARS (staff review)show more
