New comment on Maid : hard work, low pay, and a mother's will to survive / https://ils.stdc.govt.nz/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=187356#comments

By Land, Stephanie,.

. xiv, 270 pages ; 24 cm..

Nicola Leahy commented on 13/10/2022: This is a story of struggles and triumps over adversity through hard work and resilience. It is a story of putting one foot in front of the other each day to forge a new life for yourself and your family despite all the odds. I felt very inspired by this story and it is a tribute to it's author Roxane and her courage to not give up on her dreams.

By Wilcock, David,.

. x, 562 pages : 21 cm.

Nicola Leahy commented on 10/10/2022: David Wilcock combines his own dream journey with events in his own life and those he meets on the way. David's books are always beautifully researched and mind bending. If you like to think outside the box and believe in synchronicity and mysteries you will love this book.

By Gottlieb, Lori,.

. 415 pages ; 21 cm..

Nicola Leahy commented on 06/10/2022: This powerful book shows how the collaborative nature of Therapy can help everyone including the Therapist. It details the journey of the Therapist when the "wheels fall off"in her own life but also the heartwarming stories of some of her Patients too. Insightful and touching.

By Harrison, Nicola,.

. 390 pages ; 25 cm.

Tanea Mills commented on 29/08/2022: The summary on the back says it all. The writer takes one on an incredible journey. Transporting the reader to many places from humble beginnings to glamour, fame and dispair not to forget the plot twists along the way. I did not want it to end. Nicola Harrison could certainly write a sequel!

By Rimington, Stella,.

. xi, 257 pages ; 24 cm..

Nicola Leahy commented on 06/07/2022: Stella Rimington is one of my Favourite Authors and this book is one of her best so far. The story is intertwined from beginning to end with believable content due to her many years at Mi5. A really riveting read.

New comment on The princess diarist / https://ils.stdc.govt.nz/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=163330#comments

By Fisher, Carrie,.

. 257 pages : 23 cm..

Nicola Leahy commented on 21/03/2022: Most have known Carrie Fisher as an actress but what many don't know is that she is also a very talented author. All of her books including this one display a very dry and witty humour making this a fun and easy read. The inside story of her time as a fledgling actress in Star Wars and excerpts from her journals make this a very poignant memoir for Star Wars fans.

Nicola Leahy commented on 12/03/2022: A charming story of past and present lives intersecting in London when an American woman finds a vial in the Thames. The journey to discover it's origins and the people involved changes her life. An easy read with some interesting historical elements to enjoy.

By Osman, Richard,.

. 450 pages (large print) ; 24 cm..

Comment on 01/06/2021: A good idea. Being Book 1, there is a lot of things that happened in the past that are not satisfactorily explained in this book. - hopefully in subsequent episodes.

By Rhodes, Kate,.

. 392 pages : 24 cm..

Comment on 08/02/2021: There's getting to be a sameness about the plots in this series.

Maria Brewerton commented on 16/12/2020: This was an excellent story, narrated very well. Meg's story has many twists and turns and the mystery of her new home had me riveted.

By Clark, Mary Higgins,.

. 301 pages ; 24 cm..

Comment on 18/07/2020: Unfortunately, after reading a couple of titles from this series, it's obvious in the first few pages who the 'Baddy' is going to be; but still a good read.

By Booth, Stephen,.

. 394 pages ; 24 cm.

Jennifer Corbett commented on 15/04/2020: I enjoyed this story even though it was challenging at times. The book looks at some of the reasons for suicide and methods. It raises questions about euthenasia and what can be found on the internet
