By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 10 Sept. 2013
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. Kevin Roach has plainly researched the French and Harrison families and previously unpublished photos and documents have been included. You get a clear picture of the two families who created George Harrison.

Louisa Woollam, George's maternal grandmother is repeatededly called "Louise" throughout the book. Other books report her name as being Louisa, her fourth child and third daughter Louise, a variation of Louisa is plainly her namesake.

Harry Harrison and Louise French were reported as having married in May of 1931, although most other books and documents record the Harrison-French union as having taken place in May of 1930. Their first child, daughter Louise was born three months after the Harrison-French union on August 16, 1931. Roach discloses that the marriage, which did not take place in a church was because Louise was already expecting their daughter. Louise herself confirms this in her book My Kid Brother's Band a.k.a. the Beatles

Readers are treated to stories about the various members of the Harrison and French families. Readers see a picture of Harry's father, Henry Harrison who died in 1914 during WWI at Mons. (Hunter Davies' mentions this briefly in The Beatles: The Authorised Biography. All Davies says is that Henry Harrison was killed in Mons and that his widow, Jane was "put off services" and "didn't want her son to enlist.")

Bonus treats include stories about the lives of the Harrison and French families and readers get a sense of both sets of George's grandparents and great grandparents.

As much as I love all Beatle related products and have been mightily impressed by Kevin's previous work, I was left sadly disappointed by this book, I had eagerly anticipated its arrival and it was kindly autographed but the excellent research was let down by poor proof reading/spell check/ grammar, e.g one example George's son Danny, really, Anyway looking forward to the next one.

I ordered this book for Christmas and although I did so a bit late in December and was worried it would not arrive on time, it did. The author's signature is a lovely touch and makes it that much special to offer as a present. This is not just a book but for a Beatles fan, it is something to treasure.
