A truly great read,
By A Customer
This review is from: To Serve Them All My Days (Paperback)
Delderfield offers us one of the best stories about life between the wars. David Powlett Jones, miners son and scholarship boy, is invalided out of the trenches and sent to convalesce as a teacher at a minor public school. From this fairly mundane start we are then catapulted into a journey of discovery. The many and diverse characters are brought to life superbly and we follow P-J's successes and failures almost as active particpants than mere observers. This is a story which, although dated, does much to capture an England where hope and good were ideals to be admired. A terrific read and a deserved masterpiece. Don't lend this to a friend, you may not see it back!
