Let me 1st make it clear that I are aware of the author of this book individually from Liverpool. In fact, I’m able to produce this review solely because Mr. Evans has allowed me to read the manuscript in advance of the release date. I make no promise which I could be wholly unbiased, as I look into Ray to always be a good friend. I can only wish to separate my opinion of this particular book from my respect as well as admiration for it’s author.
I just knew many of these accounts prior to reading the book, as I have often chatted with Ray about the experiences of his as a kid evacuee during the Second World War in Liverpool. Having also paid a big section of my youth in Europe, listening to the grandmother of mine and grandfather tell amazing stories of everyday living during as well as after the battle, I was intrigued at the thought of looking over this story the moment that Ray told me he had started writing it.
