Review of 'The Thorn Birds' on 'Goodreads'

I saw this as a tv series and decided that I should at last read the book. Unfortunately the copy I got from the library had such small print I couldn't cope with it, which is not uncommon in older books. Hence the one star as I only struggled through the first chapter.

Review of 'Remember Me' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Charity Norman creates characters and stories that are relatable and being set in NZ is always a bonus for me. This book covers several emotional issues: Alzheimers, Huntingtons, missing persons, death with dignity. While not everybody would have dealt with one of these issues personally, there are probably few who do not know somebody who has.
Charity Norman's books always maintain a steady pace and as with all of her books I found this one hard to put down.
