Product description


By Mrs. Doris. Banks on 27 Aug. 2016 Reading this lightweight book is one of the best things I have done in a long time. I started to read it and just could not put it down! It is a pure love story of a hard working man who goes through life with hardships we don't have a clue about. How he meets and marries his wife, the very love of his life, his children and over the years his grandchildren, his army career, his menial jobs, in between the years just to keep the finances and good life going. It is one of pure idyllic love which many unfortunately don't get much of, but fortunately for me, I could relate to much of it. I just loved the simplicity of it all and the Scottish dialect of course was superb. well done Richard Glass you are a credit to the writers guilds and I can't wait for your next one!! By Amazon Customer on 13 Nov. 2016 I wholeheartedly agree with the other reviewer who called this a love story; that's exactly what it is. Richard is a born storyteller and writes with warmth and humour. I have the honour of knowing the author and he is a true gentleman 'though my review is unbiased. I would highly recommend this book to old and young alike. In my opinion, books such as these should be included in the national curriculum as they offer so much in terms of history, compassion and lessons in life. By Amazon Customer on 13 Nov. 2016 This autobiography tells what someone can achieve if they have the right partner. Without Sadie, his very much loved wife, this book could never have been written. The book has sadness and humour, of the latter there is plenty and I found myself laughing out loud. Their journey through their working life involved moving house several times and varied kinds of employment all carried out with optimism and enthusiasm. I loved the book and couldn't put it down.

About the Author

From a childhood in East Lothian, through an army career with the Royal Scots Greys that took him all over the world as a member of the Pipe Band, and subsequently as a Drum Major, to a return to Scotland, via employment with ICI. The book is the biography of a man, a supportive family and a loving marital relationship.
