A totally delicious story of love between two men of different cultures; a very Australian man, John and a young man of Turkish extraction, Ilhan. The story is at times funny, at times sad. Cultural clashes cause problems until both young men try harder to understand each other. Although their ages are comparable, John comes across as quite a bit older because of his difficult early life, while Ilhan seems young precisely because of his happy childhood and social clumsiness. They have to learn about each other's differences to deepen the love they have for each other. I love the way Lily depicts her characters, with anecdotes that bring them totally to life. And I have trouble believing this is only the second book she has written. So, very well done, Lily!
