“What a cracking book which depicts life in the country perfectly.” (Catherine Johnson – Canada)

Curtis Costa reviewed this book for Pearson Magazines; “I did not want to stop reading because there was so much action. When Dad told me, ‘Lights out!’ I hid the book, turned on my lamp and kept reading. 10/10”

  1. Loved it Kat, I’m going to write about it in my shout out on Friday. I’d love to know how much of it really did happen. Great read!


  2. So glad you enjoyed, Catherine.

    Much of it has happened in some form – just not the child-to-the-rescue bits, thank goodness. (This mother would have had kittens at that!) The bike incident was a near-miss played out in front of my eyes right when I was needing it for this story. (Unplanned but perfect.)

    The helicopter actually flew in to take hubby to hospital after he crushed his femoral neck (hip) in a shocker horseriding accident.

    Marriage to Felix the Cat-astrophic Cat-tleman truly has been an inspiration for my writing. 😉
