This excellent series continues with the story of Saffron Silk. Quiet and unassuming, she has enough worry for the whole Silk family. But Saffron really struggles when it is her that has a problem. Millard writes about family with such profound insight, and she really understands how kids think. I wasn’t sure about the inclusion of God in this book – it doesn’t strike me as something that the ‘hippie’ Silks would embrace. Nevertheless, this is still a moving and realistic lok at the way that families interact, change and work together to help each other overcome obstacles.
