You may remember me reviewing this delightful, Beatle-y novel by Kelly Marie Thompson and Garry Berman back when it came out in 2016. No need for me to review it again when you can just click on the book image to the left and it will take you back to my old review.
I just wanted to give me readers a heads-up to the face that From Me to You is available as a FREE ebook download this week! From October 28 thru November 1, you can read it for free or even send the ebook as a gift to a friend or loved one! There’s no obligation or hidden fees…all the authors ask is that you take a minute and leave a review of their book on Amazon after you finish reading it. Simple as that.
And, if you don’t have a Kindle device, you can download the Amazon app for free to any smartphone, tablet or computer.
What could be better than free! And just in time for the holidays…
Funny how time flies when you’re writing a Beatles review blog! I had completely forgotten about buying the ebook – Julia – The Story Of Julia Lennon by Kevin Roach. In fact, I bought it two days after it was released on November 12, 2014. Two years is too long for this book to have gone unread and I needed something to read for this week’s review.
So, needless to say, this book can be read in a couple hours time. In fact, it’s just the facts. Author Kevin Roach who is from Liverpool, did his homework and found every shred of paper that shows the who, what, when and where’s of Julia Stanley Lennon and the rest of the Stanley family.
Mr. Roach includes images of the birth records, death records, etc., along with pictures of the houses and streets that represent the lives of Julia’s parents and siblings while living in Liverpool. Unfortunately, there are just some facts he didn’t get right and along with the obvious typos, it makes this book a bit wishy washy to read. And even with the paperwork and pictures, it’ll still leave the reader wondering…Why? But for a $7 ebook, I guess I got what I paid for. And for that reason…
I rate this book, 2 out of 4 Beetles!
Kevin Roach has written several other books that all seem to be out of print, except for a couple issues of a magazine from 2014. You can check out the rest of his works on his Amazon page.
