What readers & reviewers are saying about NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER

HONESTLY UNFORGETTABLE! You might forget a few of the books you pick up this year But you won’t forget this one. - Kate Walker I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! - Melissa Foley VIGA MAKES ME BELIEVE that survival is possible for any injustice that we experience in our life. - Melanie MacNamara WHAT A GREAT READ! - Diane Quinn A PILLAR OF STRENGTH! - Lisa Botelho GUT-WRENCHING MEMOIR and HAUNTING POETRY - Heather Lamb I HAVE NEVER READ ANY BOOK THAT FAST! - Angel Jackson I am the first male reader to review “No Tears for My Father” on this page. I’m sure any other male who appreciates a true, superbly written, powerful human interest story would find the book as difficult to put down as I did. After receiving it by post yesterday lunchtime I finished reading the book this morning at 4 a.m., unable to sleep until I had read the last page. - Billy Morgan
