This is just one of the comments received in response to Kerry Darbishire’s book, Kay’s Ark. Letters, emails and tweets have been arriving over recent weeks, full of praise for her memoir of her mother’s life. It is a lovely feeling to have given such pleasure. Here are a few more.
‘ I finished your book this morning having read it in two sittings. I have to say how much I enjoyed it. The format, moving between the recent and more distant past was delightful and it was so easy to read – the prose just flowed effortlessly….. At the end I almost shed a tear’.
‘It is a real gem, affection shining through, and no sentimentality……Like all good stories it hints at much more unrevealed, page turning mysteries.’
‘I want to thank you for being allowed to share your memories or your lovely Mum….. After all these years she is to me one of the few people whose face immediately comes into my mind when I think of her. What a wonderful life she led and how many people’s and animal’s lives were blessed by knowing her’.
