“  Hi Pauline, It's easy to praise your wonderful restaurant I am not a book reader but I was lent your book "Secrets of the Red Lantern" by a friend of Heather's who knows about my love for the restuarant and the food. What a wonderful life story, the dramas, the good and bad times, the so strict parents, the work rate they put out, incredible, your determination in your life to succeed, some lighthearted and warm moments ---Berala - the ever so large meals for young children and 3 hours, you scraping your excess onto Lewis' bowl, declaring to your mother you were all finished, what a good sister.   Aunty Ten--  her flair for cooking, Franklins frozen beef patties along with her hair cuts, flat top mullets and rat tails and tinted blonde tips and the four tiered lunch box, so many great parts to this wonderful family story, let alone the great recipes! Heather and I think you should speak to Luke and get him to make a film or series about this wonderful book, Luke could add some the great recipes it would would be a great story, So thank you again and I will be reading your book again recipes included, give Sara and Lucas our regards.    ”
