I have read 3 books by Susan Duncan and felt this was a rehash of all past reads. I also note that there are no photographs in the kindle version - I have seen the book in hard copy and know there are some beautiful photos. I would really appreciater the kindle listing when photos are not included. Since purchasing this book any book which I expect photos in (Elephant Dance for example) I realise they will not be inlcuded and purchase still if the story looks good. Pittwater however is basically a book to back up the previous books and to see where Susan lives is what I wanted. Please provide detail in the review in future.

This showed the reader what life is like in this exclusive area of outer Sydney. An inside look at the characters, their pets and lifestyle. No roads only the water to travel on so a boat is a must have or you make use of the water taxis. It made me want to visit the area, maybe if I was a few years younger live there for a while. I think that this type of community is very rare in this day and age and must say that is not a good thing. Enjoy this read if you get the chance.

Oh my gosh!!! I Love this book!!! So much so that I bought my sister her own!!!!! I loved the books by Susan Duncan and just had to 'see' what Pittwater looked like. We grew up outside of Sydney and our parents moved us to America....I look for all books Australian......I get home sick very easily and love to read so it can take me home. ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - not only for the courage of the writer, but the beautiful description of this very beautiful area of Australia. Having recently visited this area it made the area in the book so real.

You feel as if you, the reader is actually living on Pittwater. Especially knowing where it is in Sydney. I felt empathy for Susan Duncan and admire her for packing up moving to Pittwater. Such a different life - life without the hassles of close neighbours, listening to the birds and meeting interesting people who aren't really into the material things of life - eg to have the biggest tv etc. Life there is quite tranquil and interesting.
I am quite enraptured with the writing of Susan Duncan. It is so simple ( like a good wholesome home cooked meal with thre best ingredients) but tastes of more.
