    A second reading

    Again I couldn't put this amazing book down. Just to look at Albert Facey's wonderful photo in his eighties and see the strengh in that wonderful face tells you why Evelyn lovced and admired him and he her. I also had Grandparents who lived through those tough years, not being able to get work with 7 children [all born at home attended by the brown nuns as the poor were in those days] but to see it actually all written dawn in story form, makes it far more real to me. Thank you Albert Facey your book should be a must for every school child. I myself am now 76 writing this review on my Kobo, how things have changed and how we must thank your generation for allowing us, through your war service etc etc to live the lives we do now. Thank you to all of his children both dead and alive you must be very proud.

    A Wonderful Read

    What a wonderful autobiography. I could not put this book down. How this man endured such hardships through his life and still came out smiling, is unreal. Beautifully written, so easy to imagine his life as you read. Gave me a different slant on life in Australia in the old days.
