My book was a four year labour of love that has finally been
published. It started out as a family history/memoir but has evolved into a
400 page novel that would be interesting to most readers (I hope???)
The story begins as I leave Belfast in 1955 to join the navy. Crossing the
Irish Sea I think back to where it all began, my parents, how they meet and
marry. Struggle to raise six children thru two world wars. The loss of our
mother when I'm eleven months old. Adopted by my sister and husband I move
to England, lose everything when a V1 hits our home. As I grow I try to
regain my identity and return to my home in Ireland. I experience my first
sweetheart, kiss and sexual encounter. Its a tale of pain and sadness,
courage and humour. My grandfather actually worked on the Titanic.
Well! now that I have scandalously used Rovernet to advertize my book I
better mention that I have included a visit to the 1950 Earls Court Motor
Show so there is some Rover content.
In fairness to everyone I have not mentioned the Title - ISBN number or how
to order. That would be too much, and I would expect to incur the wrath of
many members, (might have already???) Anyone interested please contact me at
my email address. rodgl at pei.sympatico.ca
Happy New Year
