A very well researched and interesting book, with insight into family life in the early 20th century. For those who like to take a look at life back then, this is a really good read. The characters are real, the story is real and although the author did not have all the facts to hand, he has managed to capture the life of his great grandfather in such a way that one cannot differentiate between the fact and the fiction. History has been written from a personal point of view, a great legacy indeed. Well done Tom!
