Make sure you have a box of Kleenex next to you when you read this. The characters are so real, the pain and the trauma described so vivid that the reader quickly becomes a part of the story. Sylvia has crafted an excellent story about life issues that people sometimes don’t want to talk about – substance misuse, death, child abuse and despair – but manages to draw out the good that can come out when one has faith, hope and support. Excellent reading – I loved it.
