Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are a handful of authors who achieve that elusive trick of making you laugh out loud. For me it's James Herriot, Bill Bryson and Susie Kelly." French Entree Magazine

"A book to inspire" Good Housekeeping Magazine on Best Foot Forward

PRAISE FOR THE PREQUEL, I WISH I COULD SAY I WAS SORRY:

'A Child Called It meets Out Of Africa in this stunning memoir of a woman's 1950s childhood in Kenya. Filled with candid humor and insights, this authentic tale captures one woman's incredible coming-of-age journey.' BookBub

A SELECTION FROM THE 250 REVIEWS ON US AMAZON:

"What an astounding story, sometimes true life experiences are better than fiction."

"Heartbreakingly real."

"This memoir kept me up. I could not stop reading this. An almost idyllic early girlhood that becomes more and more dysfunctional. What a story!"

"Best book I have read in years."

"The whole story is a great tug on the heart strings. I couldn't put the book down and have every intention of reading it again."

"Spellbinding."

"A dysfunctional families true story that had me shedding real tears in some places and laughing out loud in other places as I read. A marvellous book."

"I am blown away by such talent."


About the Author

Born a Londoner, Susie Kelly spent most of the first 25 years of her life in Kenya. She now lives in south-west France with her husband and assorted animals. She believes that her explosive temper is a legacy from her Irish-American grandfather, but has no idea who to blame for her incompetence as a housewife. Still, she's very kind to animals, small children and elderly people. Susie particularly enjoys exploring the road less travelled, discovering the lives and events of lesser-known places. Susie has a rapidly growing fan base. All 5 of her popular travel books have dominated Amazon's UK paid French Travel Bestsellers, achieving the straight flush #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5. Her remarkable memoir I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry reached #35 in the US Top 100; in 2016 her story of running holiday gites in France Swallows & Robins: The Laughs & Tears Of A Holiday Home Owner reached #9 in the Australian Amazon Top 100 and was a non-fiction finalist in The People's Book Prize. Prior to publishing with Blackbird, Susie was with Transworld who sold over 50,000 of her titles in the UK.
