Summary

In Die kwart-voor-sewe-lelie skryf Eleanor Baker met ’n satiriese aanslag en fyn insig oor die wel en wee van ’n stadsgesin wat bestaan uit ’n vergeetagtige ma, ’n gemoedelike pa, Iris en haar twee susters, Elsa en Kara, hul “Hollandse” hond, ’n huishulp wat presies weet wat sy wil hê en ’n buite-aardse beskermengel met ’n aardse humorsin. In die karakters se doen en late sien die leser, met ’n glimlag, baie van hom/haarself. “Ek het jou al vertel van my naam,” sê Iris, die sentrale figuur in hierdie bekoorlike roman,"...ek glo ek sal eendag blom.” Ondanks uitdagende omstandighede slaag sy daarin om ‘n verantwoordelikheidsin te kweek wat hulle posisie as gesin ook geleidelik positief beinvloed. Die wyse waarop sy op haar gesins- en persoonlike uitdagings reageer, help haar om te groei, haar roeping te vind en vrede te maak met haar verlede.

Really not worth listening to

Firstly the narrator's voice was extremely monotonous to listen to. I have listened to many books, really enjoyed them, but this was really not my scene. I couldn't listen to it for long periods.
Secondly, the story was too drawn out and the end, uninteresting. What a pity Iris didn't pursue her modeling career, it would have brought her out of her "drab" existence. Thanks anyway
