Spiers has created a lovely holiday or weekend read here with smart, funny and quirky main characters who go on a journey of discovering things they didn't even realise were missing from their lives. This is an easy, entertaining read perfect for long summer days or that rainy Saturday afternoon. * Queensland Times * An enjoyable read. * Newcastle Herald * Hester and Harriet is one of those books that is just so fun to read. The characters are absolutely amazing. * The Galaxial World * Meet Hester and Harriet: two hilarious widowed sisters. * Canberra Times * [Hester and Harriet] may well be my favourite characters of the year. -- Jamie Ashbird * Newtown Review of Books * Hold on to your teacups - you're about to fall head over heels for Hester and Harriet. * The Westerner * Spiers succeeds in her aim of "giving a voice to ordinary women in sometimes extraordinary circumstances". * Sydney Morning Herald * A lighthearted read...with hilarious results. * Sunday Telegraph (Australia) * Europe's refugee crisis, the criminal underground, adolescent mental health and the challenges of ageing are all part of this package, wrapped up in warm, off-beat humour and a twisting, turning plot that make this a winning read... Harriet and Hester are unforgettable characters and what appears at first to be yet another cosy village read, complete with brambles and apple pie, turns out to be so much more. * Brisbane News * A delightfully British story...
