Review:

Reviews of Repossessing Ernestine 'An amazing story, full of twists and turns, Dickensian coincidences and discoveries ... Repossessing Ernestine moves the reader to anger but should remind most people of what being human and humane is really about' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times 'No anger over the wrongs of the past could be as eloquent as this cool truth-telling. Let this book get a grip on you - you won't regret it' Jill Paton Walsh, Sunday Express 'I was moved to tears' Val Hennessy, Daily Mail
