Raspberries on the Yangtze

Raspberries on the YangtzeRaspberries on the Yangtze by Karen Wallace


My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A lovely little book.


Yeah that sounds patronising.......well, it is a short book, you can read it in an hour or two but it doesn't mean it doesn't have depths.


It's a coming of age story.


Of childhood innocence that I think many city kids have probably never had or will never have again....country kids (like myself) still have a chance.


The ending felt a little abrupt to me, I feel there was more scope in this story - that it could've been a much bigger book but all in all a lovely little read.
