This one is a kid's book I picked up at the school library, because I liked the look of it. It is part of a three book set about the same house in different eras with different families living in it. Love that idea, and I love stories that have a house as one of the main characters. Because I LOVE houses! Great for girls about 9 or 10 to read.
And the piece de resistance,
What a fantastic book!!!!!! Love the cover (nice clothes!), love that it is about sisters, aunties and a very lovable dad. Can see it as a movie, so was able to picture all the characters in my mind's eye. At two inches thick you'd think it would take ages to wade through, but it was easy reading, a straight forward narrative and such an interesting story. Absolutely delightful, and another highly, highly recommended read, especially for anyone with one sister or more, or lots of aunties! Another bonus is that much of it is set in Hobart, so it seems even more familiar, and will appeal to you Tassie folk! By the way, I bought it because I knew it was a best seller and it was only $12 from Kmart. Great buy!!! Also, for those people in reading groups or bookclubs, there is a section of discussion questions in the back of the book.
