Watchit Too! It has always fascinated me when two people see each other for the first time they immediately know they are going to be close friends. And yet, it also works the other way, when two strangers can take an immediate dislike to one another and be instant enemies. How this chemistry in all of us comes about I do not know.
However, what happens when a new relationship conflicts with the old? What happens when a bad attitude turns to irrational behaviour?
This is a story about such events: the beauty of a loving but illicit relationship; the hate generated by jealousy and the flippant viewpoint of an escapee. All these perceptions come together to make a stunning and thrilling story.

NOW IN HARDBACK, PAPERBACK or eBOOK! An autobiography: Percy Chattey (London born and bred) writes his true story about growing up in the East End of London during the horror of the Second World War as a child.


Percy writes how he lived through months of nightly bombings, sleeping in cold damp shelters and how school was neglected for the war effort.

In the Air Raid Shelter made of steel, they were holding each other tightly, listening to the constant noise of the night raiders as they pounded the city with their bombs. They could also hear the gun fire from the local ‘Ack Ack’ station; men with guns trying to repel the enemy bombers who were coming over in waves. There was a whistle as a bomb fell from the sky and then another a little nearer, followed by two more, each one louder. The explosions as they hit the ground rocked the shelter. The last in the line screeched as it hurtled downwards was louder than the others. They prayed holding each other tightly knowing the last one was very near. Suddenly the noise of the explosion drowned even their screams, the shelter shuddered, the concrete base splitting like a piece of paper as their steel cover was blown on to its side.
The story continues with Percy’s struggle to find work as a war teen, joining the forces, starting, building & losing a successful business to finding the love of his life.
But then reality hits hard…
