Gritty and real. This is a semi-biographical book with all the nuances of family life in 1930s London. A life of love, loss, hard times, and surprisingly good times as we follow the good-looking and sexy Geoffrey's adventures at war—complimented and balanced against his life as a boy growing into manhood with his naughty girls down the pub and his thoughtless hedonistic ways.
We meet his mum and sister who try to teach him manners, his adored deceased wife, their young children, and their stepmother.
This book is coloured by the life his motherless children have to live, along with the people of London, France, Algeria, and Italy. It also paints how Geoffrey harbours a dark and painful secret.
