book cover - before the last all clear by Ray EvansI get how it is when you look at a book and wonder if you’ll enjoy it!

How many times have you heard the cliche “Never judge a book by it’s cover”, and yet we so often still do.

Well actually, I sort of hope that if you’re a “cover buyer type”, that the cover of Before The Last All Clear grabs your attention and tells you this is a true tale of how war affects everybody, even the very youngest of children, as it did me.

But just in case you’re the toe-dipper-test-the-water-first-type (no judgement here… honest), and prefer to take a peek inside before you fork over your hard earned dosh for either of my books. How about we make a trade?

After returning to Liverpool at the end of the war, he eventually started his own business and naturally there are a few twists and turns along the way before he retired to live in America, but you can read all about it for yourself in his latest book:
