Product description


'I was fascinated... I began reading Prunes for Breakfast with interest, but found myself more and more drawn into the story, which was a real pleasure to read.' --The Bookbag.co.uk

'John Searancke's writing captures his father's experiences very nicely... A poignant military memoir that I highly recommend reading.' --Reader's Favorite

'A wonderful story… A jolly good book indeed. We give it five stars out of five.' --Island Connections

About the Author

John Searancke is restaurant reviewer for the Canary Islands newspaper Island Connections. He also provides independent book reviews for an English publishing house. Born in 1943 he lived his early life in Ashby-de la-Zouch. Later commissioned into the Territorial Army, he has been variously a hotel and restaurant owner, director and chairman of a marketing consortium, and latterly a partner in a commercial legal services company. He now lives with his wife Sally in northern Tenerife. This is his second book; Dog Days In The Fortunate Islands (Matador, 2014) was his first.
