I recently received this review about OLD AND NEW TALES TO READ IN A HAMMOCK – I have had similar comments but this made me smile.

Hi Robyn

I bought your book this morning and I would like to give you some feedback as requested.

This book is going to be a real problem for me.  I sat down a few minutes ago to have a look at it started reading and have had to make myself close it!

If the rest of the stories are as good as the first two this will be a lovely journey for me.  I just need to try and stop reading it lol.
