Howard Epstein

About

Howard Epstein is a commercial lawyer and author 

Spending his entire working life as a commercial lawyer, but with a wide-range of other legal work from which he saw the full extent of human behaviour and misbehaviour, Howard learned the difference between cynicism and honest criticism.
Through all Howard’s work runs one three-ply thread: research, thorough research and more research. He does not kid himself that there is one truth to be unearthed, but accepts that some stories are more cogent, more credible and more accurate than others. Those inform his works – fiction or non-fiction – that he likes to relate and explain. The ones that will withstand exploration and challenge.
This writer is a master storyteller, who must surely be on the verge of widespread recognition. He really seems to research everything as carefully as he claims. And, by the last page, there are no annoying loose-ends.

I have written the first chapter (85 pages) on the abasement, abduction and deportation of children from the UK to its colonies – some 350,000 over almost 400 hundred years. 

Of course, Britain is not the only country which has this lamentable history…

I wish I'd started reading this earlier in the evening. I had to keep going till the small hours and continue the next day. I found myself invested in all the central characters. All the dialogue was lively. No boring stretches as you often get. 9 out of 10. Oh, Ok. 10 out of 10.

I really enjoyed this book. It swept me along from before Pearl Harbor to the late 1960's without taking a breath. All the characters were so believable I stopped trying to think who was genuine and who was fictional. Highly recommended.
