This is the last of this author's work so far and I am waiting for more. The storytelling must go on. All of Ms Gibbons books have been delightful. I read them straight through.
Although this was not the best book by Gibbons, it is great. I love the short chapters and the unique form of writing. I could read her books for the rest of my life! Highly recommended.
