Well, Nell’s War has been officially unleashed on the world. Yesterday was the book launch at the 1940’s Swansea Bay Museum. It had a pretty decent turnout, I’m pleased to say so I wasn’t sitting on my own twirling my thumbs.
It was great to catch up with family too, some I haven’t seen in a long while. Lots of talking about family history etc with a backdrop of WW2 songs.
After three years of writing the book and thinking that the project was above me and my skills, I have to say that I am pretty pleased with myself that I persevered with it. Now, I’ve been pestered to write a second one and after much contemplation, I will.
So far Nell has received great feedback. Here’s a few reviews from Amazon
A well-written story based on one lady’s experiences during the 3 day Blitz in Swansea. The characters are so relatable you feel as if you are part of the family. Heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
The characters are real and you feel that you are actually in it yourself.
It is so good I will be reading it again soon. Nell and Bess stand out and feel that you
actually knew them. There was a freshness of home life throughout which give a warmth of family life.
I hope there is a follow up book of how Nell, Patrick and young Bessie turn out.
Absolute brilliant read could not put it down there is a good warmth of family life you can really connect with the characters feels like your a part of the story hope there is a follow up of how nell Bessie and Patrick move on after the war
