'a wonderful book for the early teens (particularly girls)...I highly recommend it as a great read.'Reading Time, Vol 51 No 1'Delightful. But you may need a box of tissues!'Mania, November 2006'The central character of Maeve is beautifully rendered, and her journey of discovery to establish her identity and accept her Irish/Chinese heritage an affecting one...her family and friends, too, are realistically flawed and all too human. In general, there is a grand sweep to the novel and, indeed, the whole quartet.'Magpies4, September 2006
