Pegasus to Paradise by Michael Tappenden
This delightful and moving read is based on a true story. Ted and Florrie are two villagers who fell in love as many do – as sweethearts and went on to marry among friends and family. All seemed good and well until war loomed like a dark shadow on both their futures. Ted went off to be a hero and do his duty while Florrie was left to hold together their lives.
Ted managed to return seemingly unscathed, but he was a changed man. This book takes a look at something that has only recently been accepted as a real challenge with veterans – PTSD.
An emotional read having parts that are devastating and some heart-rending but it is beautifully balanced with love and humour as well.
Clear narrative with strong characters – I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
