The Loan Soldier – what people say!

We have had some tremendous comments from people who have read the book, below are a selection of these comments:

So well written that it makes it easy to read and enjoy…

…I was both absorbed and very moved…

…I have never read such a totally frank insight into army family life…you share your experiences so generously…

…the detail and descriptions are so clear and colourful

The Loan Soldier is compelling on so many levels

Good simple descriptions are interlaced with military anecdotes and meeting with interesting people, from Bedouin in desert tents to kings in their palaces

… a fantastic read; I could not put it down
