review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Mary Jane Staples

It was June 1916 when Sergeant Boots Adams of the Royal West Kents together with his men was billeted on the Descartes farm in Northern France It was a short break from the turmoil and horror of the trenches and Boots and his men in return for their free billeting were to help the farmer in his fields It came as something of a sur.

    Another enjoyable read in the Adams Family Saga incorporating the laughs the sadness and the joy the characters feel Fantastic reading The book has 2 halves 1916 and 1934 and gives some insight into Boots experiences during the First World War
