About the Author
Rupert Colley was born one Christmas Day, which means, as a child, he lost out on presents. Nonetheless, looking back on it, he lived a childhood with a "silver spoon in my mouth" - brought up in a rambling manor house in the beautiful Devon countryside. It's been downhill ever since.
He was a librarian for a long time, a noble profession. Then he started a series called History In An Hour, "history for busy people", which he sold to HarperCollins UK.
Rupert now lives in London with his wife, two children and dog (a fluffy cockapoo) and writes historical fiction, mainly 20th century war and misery. Historical fiction with heart.

Having survived the ordeal of the lifeboat Robert has a wartime/deathbed promise to fulfill. Can he fulfill it? Can he come to terms with the survivor guilt he feels?
While this is a stand alone book I highly recommend reading This Time Tomorrow so you get a more intimate feeling for Roberts family. Am anxious for the 3rd book in the series The Red Oak.
The main characters continued on with the advancement of time,with an easy to follow storyline.
Will be excited to read the 3rd.book !
More twists and turns than I expected.
Characters were well developed. I felt that I came to know them.
Then, rescue comes and life is drawn back into the normality that most live and take for granted. However, just like on the lifeboat, death take those around the survivor, causing him to feel that he is guilty for not having done more in order to save each and every one.
The threads of various episodes in the main characters life, are interwoven to create this fascinating tale.
Yes, it is difficult to read what our forebearers went through, with just the one example of a ship and it's crew being decimated, by the dreaded U boats.
The story of heroic struggle is what should be considered, when reading a book of this period and the writer has painted that struggle of man against man as well as man against nature in a truly masterful way.
I voluntarily submitted this review after reading an advanced copy of this book.
