This product was better than expected and kept me engaged to
the end. I was happy with the quality of the book, and it was as I would expect
from paperback. The front cover offered the impression that it was a book for
mums of young children and looked humorous. The caricature summed up my
impression of Sarah Chilton that I had formed during my reading. I have not
read any books like this before! I like the flow of the book and because of the
short extracts it was easy to pick up for a short while and read a couple of
pages, or read for longer if (!) I had time. Dipping in and out was actually
easier for me to complete the reading and as it was not an intense read. I liked the honesty and humour and I found
Sarah was someone I could relate to. I’m not so sure I would use the book as a
reference guide. I found the story
reassuring due to the way it lightened a horrible experience but it did not
really offer a guide to dealing with postnatal depression. It did however offer
me some great ideas on how retort to offensive people! I liked the low key
approach; that Sarah was a realist and she could make me smile even in the face
of horrendous events. This is a must read for mums of young children who are struggling
with any of the obstacles life throws at you.
None of us know what’s around the corner, but this book keeps in focus
that as long as you stay true to your values and keep grounded there is hope
out there! I think £8.99 is a little expensive, as there are so many books
available now that are half the price. However on promotion I think it will be
a popular choice. I would recommend them to read this but not distract from
seeking help from a professional as I feel this book is more grounding and
light-hearted rather than providing a guide to a more serious postnatal
depression. It is more suited for a
wider market of mums in general, struggling with everyday life! I was expecting
a guide to PND, but enjoyed a light hearted read and insight to the struggles
of being a mum experiencing some of the many unexpected hurdles that life
throws at you. Natalie Fenton – Ava 4 Years

I felt curious about the book; I did not know what to
expect. It looked good, not too fussy or in your face. It has a detailed
insight into the book on the back cover which was relevant and up to date with
references to current subjects like Harry potter. I’m still unsure if it’s a
guide or just a story to be honest. The quality is reasonable quality. The
story outline was not unique (so sorry to Ruth if it’s a true story) I’ve read
stories like it in the past but the way post natal depression was related to
was very true to life in a lot of ways and made the book unique as I’ve not
seen or read any books where PND depression is admitted to and discussed. I
found cover materials quite flimsy and cheap feeling in that the cover could do
to be a bit thicker to define it from the pages more. The actual texture of the
cover felt expensive; I think a Matt effect cover appears more expensive and
appealing than a shiny one. I didn’t realise until now that the girl on the
front had huge tired eyes I thought she had glasses on. I did enjoy reading
this story. I’ve just had baby number 2 and suffered with PND the first time so
I related to Sarah quite well. I found I wanted to keep reading the book, it
was very engaging. I didn’t really find it a guide to be honest; I felt it was
fictitious because it had a story. I didn’t see it as a guide really there
wasn’t really any information in it that made it a guide. It covered the topic
of PND but not in too much detail and I felt it was unresolved at the end which
for me was a negative, in places the book skimmed over long time periods or
changed the subject too quickly in a paragraph. I didn’t feel able to say that
it could be a reference guide as it was not covered in enough detail really. I really
enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the fact that PND was addressed truthfully and
honestly by the character; I empathised with her and felt the author had
knowledge of what Sarah was going through, the humour in the book kept it light
and not depressing to read. On occasion I laughed out loud at Sarah! I found
the book fairly short; if I picked it up and saw £8.99 I would be reluctant to
buy it based on the length for the cost. I would recommend this as a good book.
Being Sarah Chiltern is a very engaging book, hilarious in places, it touches
on a very delicate subject with warmth and truth, you can’t help willing Sarah
to get through it and keep smiling. Sarah Stringer – Thomas Jay 3 Years and Sophie Rebecca 4

I was very intrigued when this book arrived and couldn’t
wait to start reading it. The quality of the book is lovely. The front cover
was simple looking. I have not seen or read any books like this one before. I
really enjoyed reading it; it’s a very honest account of the highs and the lows
of motherhood with plenty of laughs along the way. I can honestly say I didn’t
feel like this book was a reference guide. This book is an honest and hilarious
tale. I think it is a great read and will be recommending it to others. I think
the retail price is quite high; this would put me off buying it as it is a
small book. I will be recommending this book to others. I thoroughly enjoyed
reading this book. It’s funny and sad at times. I couldn’t put it down. Anna
