Sarah Jane Butfield about this book: Glass Half Full: our Australian adventure is the story of a UK family who made one of the toughest decisions of their lives, to emigrate to outback Australia, to live the Australian dream. Why was the decision so tough? Well the family is a step-family, and leaving meant that some of the children would remain in the UK with ex-partners. After enduring a messy divorce and numerous child custody battles Sarah Jane knew that this was their only chance of future happiness and that as a family they were making the right decisions. They worked and planned hard to make it a success and it was amazing until life-changing events started to test the foundations of this resilient family.

This book tells how this amazing woman and her courageous family fought to keep their dream alive and used every piece of positivity available to create new hope and new beginnings. Life is never without its challenges. How many life-changing events can one family endure before they reach breaking point? Find out in this inspirational and touching true story.

Sarah's ability to make it feel like you are on the journey with her and her family is amazing. So many up's and down's and yet they still pulled together and got through it. A very well written book. [by Samantha Williams]
