it was amazing
bookshelves: my-favourites

A tarnished silver pocket watch, a packet of letters and poems and a newspaper clipping are all clues that tell the tender love story of two lovers, the unbreakable connection between a grandmother and granddaughter, the feisty friendship between two sisters, a true friendship over the oceans and the love between a father and his daughter.

The Particular Appeal of Gillian Pugsley is one of those rare stories that wraps around you and stays with you long after you've finished reading it. The humour, wit and exquisite writing keep you smiling, laughing and crying. There were so many amusing and quirky expressions, while the poetry was very touching.

This is definitely a keeper.
