bookshelves: author-review, auto-biography

What started as a way to leave a piece of history behind for his family and friends has become a published memoir for author John Findley. Recollections of My Life is a warm, an often humorous tale of the life and events of John and his family, from how he met his first wife to how he met his second and current wife. It would appear that John has a wild streak and his stories of his holding down several jobs to afford the dates, the cars and probably the fines involved are definitely chuckle-worthy! The love John feels for his family shines through in every word as his life unfolds for future generations to get to know him and the life he led in an era so different from contemporary times!

Have you ever thought of sharing family stories on paper for current and future generations? After reading John Findley’s well-written account, I can only say, DO IT! There is far more value in his words than all of Fort Knox. Here is a man with a story to tell, and family or not, it is a completely entertaining read!

I received this copy from John Findley in exchange for my honest review.

Jean Kenzie Hello Dianne
I so glad you saw in John’s book the exciting old man that he is; I am forwarding your review on to my friends. Though the readers amongst them have already borrowed my copy, it got very dog-eared and was put away. Last time I looked at John’s book as an eBook.
I am also pleased we corresponded through Goodreads and persuaded John to get you a copy of his book.
Great to meet you Regards Jean

Heather Findley Hello Dianne
I am also glade you saw in John’s book the value to the grandchildren and those young lives still to come into our family. John and I have been married for the past thirty years, and shows love to all of us. He only started writing a few years ago; a small group would meet in our dining room once a month. John got the bug and enjoyed the process of getting his story ready for the next meeting.
Thanks for your review, Heather
