Keggie Carew grew up under the spell of an unorthodox enigmatic father. An undercover guerrilla agent during WWII, in peacetime he lived on his wits and dazzling charm. But these were not always enough to sustain a family.
As his memory began to fail, Keggie embarked on a quest to unravel his story once and for all. "Dadland" is that journey.
The reader cannot fail to fall for the charms of Tom Carew. A fascinating and poignant story, beautifully told. I loved it.

Given to me today by my friend and fellow bookcrosser Snoopy56 when we met for lunch. Thanks very much-I shall look forward to reading it. It looks very interesting.

Review:- "I found a lot of the details about Mr. Carew's role during the war went over my head although I did admire his bravery and skill. Therefore I skimmed over some of the book. However I did enjoy reading about the course of his illness, having a keen interest in dementia. I found that the constant time slips were a bit annoying but so many authors seem to think this is the only to write a book nowadays it seems.

I will do my best to find another keen reader for this book or otherwise wild release it.

My husband has also read quite a lot of this book. He found the war experiences quite interesting but thought some of the information was a little too detailed.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
