“There have been 2 most positive experiences since I got on to Facebook. One of them has been reading Nor the Years Condemn by Justin Sheedy.

Set during WWII, this is an outstanding novel where its Australian author has captured the perfect balance between what is expected of “story telling” & historical accuracy. The author’s incredible sensibility reflects in his portrayal of each & every character.

I thought particularly moving his description of how Daniel (the main hero) spent his last day in Sydney with his younger brother Matt and again in Matt’s letters to his beloved & much admired brother Danny, a wonderful way for the author to give us an insight into life in Sydney of the period. A wonderful way to make them so real, so human and a clever way to let us in to their innermost dreams & aspirations… You do believe they are & feel all they feel along with them.

The author’s meticulous & accurate description of the flying, the planes (I never knew there were so many!), the training, the missions over foreign locations, the hint of espionage, the glory & the emotional trauma of its characters has all the makings of a classic war movie – At times I could liken to a documentary.  So much so that I believe this is a book which should be made part of the SCHOOL CURRICULUM. For what better way to inspire & capture the young ones’ imagination but with a book such as this?!

MY MOST SINCERE THANKS TO ANGELA. Her Review will feature in the Reader Reviews section of next edition of the book – as with all current and future Reader Reviews of “Nor the Years Condemn”.  PEOPLE POWER is Making this book a Success.  READER POWER.
