Touching fiction
5 stars By JLouise, Feb 17 2010
Realistic, well-researched, and thought-provoking - Jo-Anne has created another touching novel in her third book, Laura. 

While Laura is a fictional character, there is something real there to inspire all of us. Laura's tenacity and struggle resonated as I read this novel, as I'm sure it will do for you. 

It's fabulous to read a story set in Australia, and I very much appreciate how Jo-Anne centres the story on a real life, avoiding a romantic theme.

Jo-Anne's writing has again improved with this novel, and I am very much looking forward to her next one!
