Raspberry House Blues (Flyways)

Raspberry House Blues (Flyways)

by Linda Holeman (Author)


Poppy is an aptly named red-head with an attitude problem. Yet, beneath her normally cool, dismissive exterior is a more vulnerable, likeable side. At home with her adoptive mother, tensions abound as Poppy focuses her teenage angst by fantasizing about the birth mother she has never known. After a row with her mother, and hoping to trace her real mother, Poppy takes off to visit her father and his new family in Winnipeg.

This is a compelling read. Poppy is a believable character, with many flaws and virtues, who eventually overcomes the issues created in her mind, thus finding her true self in the process.' -- Amazon.co.uk Editorial Review
