I have read a few books recently by Australian writers and enjoyed most of them but, regrettably, not this one. The story line set out on the jacket sounded interesting but I'm sorry to say that Jennie Jones' writing doesn't come up to scratch. The story itself is good but I couldn't get up any enthusiasm at all for the writing which spends far too much time on 'woofle' and not enough time on the story. The writing is stilted and there is no flow to the words. Sorry, Ms Jones, but I won't be looking for more of your books.
