This true story starts with a 13 year old Choir Boy who wants to follow his Mothers Jesus. He is fighting 111 Health, lack of education, and frustration with his view of the world and the church. The book concludes with him leaving College and University for the Manse of his first church then aged 37. The road is full of humorous and interesting situations when he does almost every kind of work a man can think of, Lift attendant, Civil Servant, factory worker, office and shop work. A House Master to children, Motor mechanic, Actor, Preacher, Tea boy and Manager, and more. Set in the years 1937 to 1960 there are memories of war torn-, blitzed London with miracle escapes from bombs and Doodle Bugs, Nostalgic looks at shop girls when they lived in poor conditions over the shop. And the pre war Pawnbroker. We see him facing girl temptations where only God can deliver him, and later on marriage and family life. And through all these adventures he consistently holds to a belief that God has a plan for his life, and he must find it. In the end he gives up looking for Gods plan, and then God steps in with a box of miracles which continue to the very last page. This book will cause laughter, sometimes a tear perhaps, will certainly entertain, and maybe make the reader ask could something in this book be Just for me ! Comments of a few who have read this before publishing. What a nice read. Pity there are not more books like this, they make you feel happy, and good I really enjoyed your book, It is well written and of real interest. Im not a religious man and therefore not so keen on the God-slot, but I admire your sincerity and without that the book would be spoiled. Keep it just as it is and try to get it published, if you write another I would buy it. Very Good work. Read your book by accident, couldnt put it down .Excellent, interesting and enjoyable. Would love to see it in print. (Another Book is coming soon Long Road of Miracles)
