This is an auction for THE FAMILY FRYING PAN by Bryce Courtenay.

Illustrated by Ann Williams. reviews:

"Mrs Moses is a small woman with a big heart and enormous courage. The only survivor of a Cossack raid on her Russian village, she flees with a large heavy cooking pot, that she uses to feed the various refugees who are travelling with her across Russia to freedom. An amazing story of bravery, compassion and hope."

"FIVE STARS!!! Whoa! This book has it all! It has its sad moments, sad enough to make you cry. The characters's hope is heart warming. An the outcome is absolutely inspiring! The story in a nutshell is about a group of Russians who have escaped and fled there invaded village to find a new place to live their lives in peace. Everyday this group of refugees, who have all different backgrounds and personalities, have to walk across Russia in the snow. The main character (can't remember her name) leads the group and every night she takes out her large iron frying and the group all put what scraps and pieces of food in the pan and cook just enough food to stay alive. While eating, each night a person will tell a story. Some are tragic, sad, inspiring, mysterious and all are unique. The ending of this Novel is truly inspiring! And isn't his usual type of story. When I first saw it I though it was a cookbook. Anyway it's probably my favourite book and is really, i mean REALLY worth reading! So go pick it up! Hope you all like it! It would make a great movie, Hopefully one day it is! Great work there Bryce Courtenay!"
