I'm very pleased with the reviews of Flying through Clouds that have been published so far. I got off to an excellent start when Jackie French read a review copy and loved it, then she allowed me to include her quote on the cover and inside the book.

‘Superb! Adventure combined with a deep understanding of our history - and some of its most exciting bits.’

(Jackie French, back cover of Flying through Clouds)

Bill Condon also read a review copy and his full review was published in Buzz Words. Here is an excerpt:

‘Read it for its accurate depiction of Depression-era Sydney. Read it for a rattling good story; it’s highly recommended.’ (Bill Condon, Buzz Words 13 Feb 2017)

Quotes from other recent reviews:

'...the description of time and place lifts it and gives Flying through Clouds a good grounding in this part of Australian history.' (Emily Clarke, Reading Time 13 Feb 2017)

‘A heart-warming family story…evokes the time and historic setting vividly by including real events.’ (Lyn Linning, Magpies March 2017)

'The background of the novel is wonderfully realised, with readers able to sink into the surrounds of Sydney in the 1930s...' (Fran Knight, ReadPlus 13 Apr 2017

Many thanks to the reviewers, journals and websites!
