“I was fascinated by the characters in this book. Both my parents were born in Malta, so I could totally relate to the stories. Can’t wait for the next installment….”

– Margaret Perry, Newcastle

“I really enjoyed reading it. What a great travel book! But it’s much more than that…. I’d like to read it again. The people and the relationships fascinate me and now I understand why you are in Malta. Thank you so much for your story. I hope many people hear it and find treasures in it.”

– Marina Thacker, Brisbane
