Publisher's Summary

Mrs. Moses is a small woman with a big heart and enormous courage. The only survivor of a Cossack raid on her village, she takes with her a big cast-iron frying pan, so heavy that she can only sling it over her back. Yet this is no ordinary frying pan, it's The Family Frying Pan, blessed with a Russian soul. From this frying pan Mrs. Moses manages to feed the various refugees who are travelling with her across Russia to freedom. In return, each of the group must tell a story around the campfire at night, stories of compassion and bravery, of human frailty and, above all, of hope.

    "Different concept to his others"
    What did you love best about The Family Frying Pan?

    I loved all the different stories. I loved how the story was told, it made it very real. You could really feel the pain of the character's lives.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how all the different stories were interweaved with their current situations and that the tales were told around the Family Frying Pan to other people who were interested despite their pain and suffering of the past and the present.


    What about Melissa Eccleston and Humphrey Bower ’s performance did you like?

    I love listening to anything that Humphrey Bower reads. He is my favourite narrator. I read/listen to books because he is involved. I thought Melissa Eccleston did a fantastic job and will seek out other books that she narrates.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, many moments in the book particularly moved me.

    "funny and engrossing"

    This book held my wifes and my interest on a driving trip. The stories are engrossing and you really wonder at the end are they true? Very enjoyable and well narrated.

    "Excellent narration"

    I enjoyed this Bryce Courtenay story. It was more like a series of short stories woven into one story. This was not my favorite Courtenay book, but still a worthy listen.
