Books - Review

Behind the Scenes at the MuseumStory of Ruby Lennox and several generations of her family from the Boer war to the 1990's. Lots of family tragedy as there is a tendency for people to die prematurely in a variety of ways, never mind all the animals who die in the great pet-shop fire. We also have Ruby's own personal tragedy when she is only four years old.

Very good, excellent beginning with Ruby narrating her own birth and despite all the death and gloom, very believable characters, mostly flawed mothers, fathers and siblings. and funny too in places.
