What a week!
The first carton of my latest book Never Forget arrived from the printer in Singapore. It was such an exciting moment to rip open the box and finally hold a copy in my hand.
Never Forget is the result of several year’s work, and is very close to my heart. It features some dear, wonderful people, who have been so generous and brave in sharing their memories and stories of World War II with me. The trust they have shown in me has been truly humbling.
This book highlights the effect of war on ordinary citizens, who either made the decision to fight, or whose lives were completely turned upside down by its impact. In another generation, the people who lived through these terrible events may no longer be here to tell their stories, which is why it was so important to me to capture just a few of them in this book.
The other 970 copies of Never Forget will soon be making their way to New Zealand via ship, and are due to arrive in late July.
I can’t wait to share it with the world!
