Awesome Story

A good friend of mine tried to get me to read this book ages ago saying I’d love it.  Another friend of mine also said the same thing, so begrudgingly I took the book and thought one day I’d give it a go.  I’m not a fan of war stories and this certainly looked like that’s what it would be about, BUT as they say… “you should never judge a book by its cover”… and that couldn’t be more true in the case of this fantastic story.

I loved it.  It’s incredibly readable and as it’s set in Auckland it has the bonus attraction of making me want to drive to where the book is set.  It was a wonderful insight into life shortly after the war and it sure made me feel incredibly grateful to be enjoying life as we know it today.  I rate all the books I read and this one gets the highest rating of 5 stars!
