About the Author
Beckwith was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916, where her father ran a grocery shop. The shop provided the background for her memoir About My Father's Business, a child's eye view of a 1920s family. She moved to the Isle of Skye with her husband in 1942, and began writing fiction after moving to the Isle of Man with her family twenty years later. She also completed a cookery book, Secrets from a Crofter's Kitchen (Arrow, 1976).
Since her death, Beckwith's novel A Shine of Rainbows has been made into a film starring Aidan Quinn and Connie Nielsen, which in 2009 won 'Best Feature' awards at the Heartland and Chicago Children's Film Festivals.

I also found the 'printing errors' very common and very annoying but that seems to be common with all the e-books I've read so far. However 3 in one sentence seems a bit much and drought instead of thought (in the body of the text not in speech) was used so much made me think about just deleting whole thing.
The storyline in itself was good, I just thought it could have been delivered with more life, passion and even interest. If there is a book 2 (or more) I won't be reading them.
