Oh Dear Silvia

This was such a beautifully written book, so poignant, so real, I loved every moment even when crying like a baby!!

Beautifully funny.. And touchingly sad

There was moment I simply couldn't help but laugh and others that I had to cry. It is so different to Dawn's previous book. This one is equally clever though, and has the trade mark of insightful observations of human character and the unexpected twists in plot.

I loved it
