REVIEW:-"I enjoyed this book as much as I had the first one in the series-The Soldier's Return. (I have discovered there are four in total). I could maybe have managed without quite so much detailed description of young Joe's bodily functions. However I did enjoy reading about his sledging, snowballing and swimming and watching him grow up.
It was telling of the period that Ellen felt compelled to completely change her lifestyle to fit in with what Sam wanted to do even though she was not in the least keen to do so.
The singing on the bus home from Blackpool reminded me of many such "sing-alongs" I've joined in with in my time and also of trips to Great Yarmouth-our Norfolk equivalent of Blackpool. I was interested to discover that the author himself grew up in Wigton and that he shared several other factors in Sam and Joe's lives.
I found it rather disturbing being inside Joe's head towards the end of the story and longed for him to be able to discuss his thoughts and feelings with somebody.
I felt that the book had rather a strange ending but I shall look forward to reading the next two episodes when I can lay my hands on them."
Reserved for 4evegreen until I hear whether he wants to read it or not.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book was sent to 4evagreen as I previously sent him the one before it -The Soldier's Return. I hope he'll enjoy both of them in due course.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

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.
