By: Alf Q Wood  05-Apr-2012

Is a heartfelt reminiscence of the formative 7 years of a young man’s journey from childhood to young adulthood in South Africa, punctuated with uncertainty and hardship, abuse and neglect. Set in the sixties, Alf Wood provides a rich observation of a child’s upbringing through the hardships and complexities of a breaking home, school, friendships and enmities, and on into army life.
All who experienced the uncertainties of family strife at a time where little information was shared with children, will identify and feel for the young man and his sister, passed from hand to hand; an inconvenience while things were working through.
