Reviews

`Delightful, laugh-out-loud funny and unforgettable. I love this book' Toni Jordan, author of Addition `O'Reilly is funny and touching by turns and her style has a spare intelligence that reminded me of another of my favourite authors, the great Laurie Graham' DAILY MAIL `A delight ... The author has a wryly-humorous touch and, once I started reading, I found it hard to put down. It's peopled with characters who are quirky but credible, and universally recognizable' NEW BOOKS MAG `Can anyone write the story of a whirligig single mother gamely and hilariously fighting development of her small town better than Paddy O'Reilly? No, and nor should they try' WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN `O'Reilly displays a deft poetic touch that elevates the prose from functional to transcendent...This is a story about love: where we look for it, what we do with it and how it shows up in the most unexpected packages. It is warm, moving and funny' BIG ISSUE, AUSTRALIA
