My Mum who wrote "Pavlovas to Popcorn" has just released her sequel, "The Boomerang Returns" on her own blog so anyone can read it. All her writing is based on her life story. She is, in my opinion a phenomenal story teller. She writes the way she talks. If you get a chance go to http://atouchoffrost-frosty.blogspot.com/ and enjoy her story. The Boomerang is a reference to her Aussie heritage and her return visit after living in the US for 14 years.
