Absolutely wonderful book. My mother gave me her copy for my 35th birthday, and it's the best
2nd hand book I have ever had. It's full of good old-fashioned advice (which works) written in a lady-friendly way. Her section for children is spot on too. her recipes use ordinary things which you can buy in your high street chemist (like almond oil, coconut oil, mineral water)
