Item description for LOTS AND LOTS OF SUGAR by Mary Wadsworth-Cooke...

Join Maria in her bittersweet telling of a South African woman's coming of age: Of dawn patrols as a child with her Oupa (grandpa) for rogue lion in the bush veldt; of mischievous boarding school life with its insatiable prankishness; of a hitchhiking tour in cold war Europe, sweet romance, political intrigue and tragedy. Then, back again in Africa, caught in the horror of the Congolese uprising and its turmoil---come...experience it all through the eyes of a bright and beautiful Maria.

Fleeing her losses, determined to forget, Maria emigrates to the States.

But here she faces further bereavement and, because of it, becomes deathly ill and falls into a melancholia so deep , she lives with the only comfort she now finds---the ghost of her past love. A compassionate physician whose healing is not limited his work with a scalpel, through a long and painful process of therapy, brings her back into a new bright world where she learns to accept her losses. But for Maria there is more sadness and disillusionment...for the physician---more healing.

Reviews - What do customers think about LOTS AND LOTS OF SUGAR?

How do you solve a problem like Maria??  Mar 14, 2004
You read her book! This is a wonderful story that begins with two little girls going off to boarding school in Africa and ends with the beginning of a beautiful love story. In between the reader shares Maria's experiences of falling so in love while traveling in Italy, being an abused wife, falling in love again with a wonderful man and so much in between. I truly enjoyed reading this book and plan to reread it before I go to Italy.
It's a helpful thing to read about how other people lived their lives. You will have much to think about after finishing this book.
This woman has, like many of us, been through hell at the hands of a sadistic man. She, unlike
some of us, lived to tell about it, largely due to a compassionate doctor (all too rare today).

Every woman needs to read this book, if only to learn what an evil man can do to a successful
woman. This book should be required reading at every high school in the nation.

Get it for your daughter. Today. Before she meets Mr. Wonderful and is taken, inch by imperceptable inch, down the corridors into helplessness and slavery.

Amazing Story! Delightful and Historically Informative!!  Jan 17, 2003
This author takes her reader by the hand and leads him down the winding road of her life in a deeply gripping, historically true story of her life, beginning as a child, during the WWII era in Africa. Her escapades in boarding school are worth a really good belly-laugh and her life in the African bushveldt with her Grandfather is filled with charm, wonder and nostalgia. But the incredible direction her life then takes as she grows up and struggles through unanticipated outcomes and unimaginable horror, from uprisings in Africa to post WWII Europe, had me unable to put the book down! What a life this woman had and how well she tells it!
Picked this up from a used bookstore and was amazed at how the prose drew me in. Never heard of the author or publisher either, but definitely a powerful narrative.
Goes to show that there are still some undiscovered gems out there.
As a reviewer, I get hundreds of books a week. But every once in a while...

How long and winding is each of our roads... The road described by this South African woman
is long and winding indeed--and not without its dangers. This is one of those rare books which makes one both laugh and cry by turns. It's a book that any woman would love, as they will all find something to identify with, be it the childish pranks or the spousal abuse by a predatory male.
This is one not to miss.
