I have read your book, Bread and Wine, which I found wide ranging, intimate, very informative, sensitive and a joy to read. I would recommend it to anyone. It is easy to read (you seem to be speaking to the reader personally)and all readers will find something to enjoy, something profound to think about, plus your special blend of wit and humour, sadness and depth.

Jean Jones: This book is beautifully written and put together. Jean particularly likes the story of the old man with the cart and thinks anyone could identify with him. The writing and characterization is so much improved since earlier years. All fits together and the end result achieves the ambition - the cultural influences - modern cultures. But she loves the man with cart best because he is so human he could fit into any culture and we would feel his feelings. A special and most enjoyable book.

I have enjoyed this book more than I can say, and it says everything I would like to say. I love traditional habits and how they came to be. Also, I love the tone of the Author and his humanity - I feel I know him. Let's have more books like this on the market. A real joy.
