I’m loving your book.  It’s a real page turner and it’s hard to put down.  I’m torn between zooming through it and savouring it slowly.  At times I compromise and read some bits twice. It is beautifully written and captures the time and place with precision and great artistry.
I am in awe as ever. – Tasmania, Australia
