    Loved it

    So nostalgic and gently written. I love Joan Londons writing. Went back and read Gilgamesh and good parents which I also loved. Great to have them set in places so familiar for once. I could feel the Perth in the pages.

    Past polio

    Josn London writes with a sensitivity that is light and poignant. She has captured the age of entering adolescence for children who are also burdened with the challenge and change of poliomyelitis. Her sense of local atmosphere is superb and her understanding of human nature has great depth.

    The Golden Age

    A beautiful and moving read that brought back many memories of school mates and friends that struggled with the debilitating effects of Polio.
