Well meaning but dull and annoying

The suffering and exploitation of the illegal immigrants was well portrayed and actually very moving in places. I just didn't enjoy the relationship between the two main characters. Juliette is a self-centred and self-pitying woman, given to crying jags with tiresome frequency. I also felt very uncomfortable with her referring to her new friend as a 'house boy'. Let’s face it, she is somebody who was prepared to exploit the immigrants for their cheap labour and was generally irritated by their presence and the difficulties of having to pay and feed them. Her portrayal as an overall force for good was therefore a bit too rich for me. This was one of my bargain purchases, so I can't really complain too much, but l I thought this book was boring, irritating and far too safe given the seriousness of the subject matter.

Rambling enjoyable yarn

Liked it. A soothing silliness. Descriptions could be better, there were a lot of 'the' in the descriptions. The grass was green. The sky was blue. The and so on. Descriptions didn't flow. But the rest was great as a relaxing listen.
