      What a cracking little read!I must admit I started reading Tommy’s Tunnel with no small degree of trepidation, but the tale of this diminutive little Geordie soon captured and enchanted me, and I came away from the book feeling strangely privileged, as if for some short measure of time I was actually part of the family.Tommy (Granddad) is a pint-sized hero with a huge heart and immeasurable love for his family. He grieves for his lost mates and aches for his wife, yet for the most part manages [...]

      "If only I could speak to him just one more time and tell him how proud I am and how much he was loved and respected -- instead of taking him for granted and calling him a grumpy old git"That just about sums up the message I got from this book, and I wish that I'd had a granddad like this, or even a granddad of any sort.And he really did play football with the Germans on Christmas Day 1914, then later blew them up. No wonder he found that difficult to live with. God bless you, Thomas Gray xx

      What a lovely read.I was lucky enough to win a Signed Paperback Copy of this book in a competition. The Kindle edition of the same book was on free promo yesterday so I grabbed a digital copy too for reading on the move when I might not necessarily have a book with me. I wondered if this book would have lots of war history in it-but it's not just that. The book is really a tribute to Linda's Grandad, about his war time experiences, a slice of history and about their family life. There are many p [...]

      Loving tribute to a brave manThis is a haunting tribute to the late Thomas Gray and his fellow soldiers and family.The book is more than just an insight into the history of Tommy and his life and service to the nation. Written by his niece who remembers a loving grandfather and researched back to before the war, this story is also littered with touching poems and family photos making it a very personal tribute to the man's life. After reading it, I have a sense of knowing Tommy and his family ev [...]

      Tommy’s TunnelWhat a wonderful and moving tribute to her grandfather Thomas Gray this is. Linda De Quincey has pieced together the events of WW1 that so deeply affected her grandfather. He is an ordinary man who was caught up in extraordinary events and he lived with the trauma of those events for the rest of his life. They disturbed his sleep and gave him nightmares, Nowadays there would be counselling available but then people shut down their feelings and got on with their lives. He never wa [...]

      This book, for me, was both brilliant and a disappointment, hence I settled for the three star rating.From the title and blurb, I expected a war story, the tale of how a man fought and survived in the First World War. That's not what this book is.What it is, is a sweet, charming recount of a woman's memories of her grandfather, who clearly must have been an exceptional man, a gentleman of great wit, humor and patience. Maybe with a bit too much family - too many names to remember. The war aspect [...]

      Charming and poignant little book written by a loving granddaughter about her grandfather Thomas Gray, a quiet, unassuming man who carried not only the nightmares of fighting in WW1 until his dying day, but also the grief at losing his beloved wife Florrie in 1964 through illness. Throughout his sadness he still tried to to remain cheerful for the rest of the family. A touching memento for future generations of the author's family to treasure.

      giveaway: I was lucky enough to win this. It's a cracking collection of humorous verse. I will certainly dip and dip again into this professional looking anthology. Thank you for listing, Linda. It's fab!
