Geoffrey Gordon, a young widower under dubious circumstances lives in London. A father to two children he takes a marriage of convenience so that he can leave his children and join up to fi ght in the Second World War. He fi ghts through Dunkirk, N. Africa and Italy where his experiences will at times make you laugh uproariously, and at others bring you close to tears. Gradually Geoffrey sinks into madness due to his personal loss and war, made worse by the dark secret that he has carried with him since the death of his fi rst wife.
V.J. Bacon will give you a deep insight into Geoffrey’s Gordon’s life and experiences, writing with a wry and ready wit and an ability to make you laugh and cry. A real page turner, you will not want to put it down. If you are a fan of the books ‘Virgin Soldiers’ and ‘Come to the War’ by Leslie Thomas you will love V.J. Bacon’s writing.
