What the Experts say

Sarah Broadhurst, our Editorial Expert has read and reviewed this brilliant new book. Here is what she had to say:

‘It does sound a bit light and fluffy but actually this is a gripping human drama which deals with real and tragic situations.  There is no happy ending, no magic wand to make it all better, no perfect solution but what there is a well-written page-turner.’
