    As a continuation of Salvation Creek this book continues the life of Susan Duncan in her life post cancer It was beautifully written and a book that reminded me how wonderful the small things in our everyday lives should be cherished and enjoyed Friends family love and food

    Interesting Its mainly about living in Dorothea Mackellars house in Pittwater and trying to find out about the house Its also about the community there and life Its pretty life affirming and positive despite the book beginning with her brother and husband dying within 3 days of each other her getting cancer but surviving and then her next door neighbours wife also gets cancer but dies she and the husband get together fall in love after a these tragedies and move into the house I think the full stories of all this in the first book Salvation Creek Theres lots of good descriptions of food close calls on boats goannas tourists business ventures and day to day life as people get older and others dieIts aboutwell life

    I loved this book Susan Duncan has an amazing writing style that really captures the imagination Although this is not a novel it is true life which shows what an amazing writer she is I couldn't wait for 'reading time' each night to escape into the adventures Susan and Bob shared Looking forward to book three

    Interesting read Pittwater sounds like a lovely place to visit Did her husband have a dictionary of platitudes to uote every time she spoke to him? Sadly You will never want to eat cake again

    Very disappointing The first book was definitely better and seemed to have purpose Although this book explored who the architect of Dorothy McKellar's house may have been it wasn't a particularly interesting issue for me and to be honest I dont really mind who it was I found this book to have less purpose and conseuently was much less interesting Didnt hold my interest skimmed parts
