The main character is very engaging and you can't help rooting for her. It's the story of how she survives back in the days when there were no help lines or counselling. I like the humour too. Excellent book.
These are really good stories. It's hard to say which is my favourite - probably 'World of Clare'. There is often an unexpected twist and also a lot of humour. I like the way bleakness and cheerfulness co-exist in the same story sometimes and I like the characters.
