Editorial Reviews

Review

A genuinely delightful story - beautifully written.

The story of an emotionally-scarred, childless elderly man and his wife, who move next-door to a vulnerable family with a young son. The writing style perfectly complements the main character, and what shines through on every page is the restrained but deep love the elderly couple feel for one another. As the old man and the young boy draw one another out of their self-imposed shells, a very moving bond develops. In this impeccably-told story everything has a reason, and we're aware of it throughout, but we don't discover the real selfless depth of it until the very last lines, which made me laugh and cry. Moving, touching, refreshing, heart-warming, and one of the best books I've read for a while. A recommended read. If it had been written by Dickens, it would be a classic by now. - Rebecca Bryn,  Author of Touching the wire

 

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would.

Michael Kroft is a fellow Haligonian. This book is set in Halifax and brought back memories of my childhood. Avriel and Ruth remind me of my grandparents and reading about them often made me smile and sometimes made me cry. His careful construction of the characters and the setting brought the story to life.
Mr. Kroft brings us a story that shows us how powerful love can be. It can make us want to live again. It can bring us through even the most horrible circumstances. It can come from your soul-mate, a little boy, a woman in trouble and even a cat. This story touched me and I wish I had the words to tell you how much. I recommend this book to everyone. I hope you buy it. I know you won't regret it. -Electa Graham,  Author of Blood and Loss
