    Thanks Catin. This is the line I like - the reviewer understands this book....

    "when she writes about how her “singing silenced the bullies” and about losing her mother, father and sister, you begin to understand the amazing grace and emotion behind I Dreamed A Dream."

    Great for Susan to be included in this recommendation. Would so like to see more reviews that pick up on the incredible humor and this book's gripping and fast-moving writing.

    They come, they come, to build a wall between us...we know they won't win." Don't dream it's over.
