Book Review – Rocky Road

imagesThe incredible true story of the fractured family behind the Darrell Lea Chocolate Empire by Robert Wainwright

Even allowing for the passage of time this was a very weird and definitely fractured family. It was also the generation that oversaw the demise of the Darrell Lea chocolate and lolly empire. Succinctly written it was a very quick read. It is certainly from a different time that had very different attitudes to adopted children.
