"Instantly likeable and believable characters caught up in an impossible situation. With Thinner Than Water, Sue Hampton brings warmth and humour to a potentially devastating situation. A lovely read." – Dawn Finch
"Thinner Than Water is an enjoyable and fascinating read.

"A thought provoking, fascinating and completely captivating book about the importance of family, self awareness and self belief." – Love Reading
