Description - Thirty Years In A Turtleneck Sweater by Nick Warren

Nick Warren was just like any other boy growing up in the 70s, he liked playing out and being a little sod, and loved his younger brother and sister. Then one day when he was six, his mother kissed him goodbye to go shopping and never came back. Nick s dad, Des, took over as best he could, but because he had to work, things weren t easy. Nick even spent time in care. Everything changed when his dad brought a new mum home, who was kind like Julie Andrews, and, soon after, a new brother and sister whom his dad had rescued from an unhappy family. Then just as Nick felt everything was good again, his dad was taken away. A union man, Des was sent to prison simply for standing up for what he believed in. It was a cruel act that slowly tore the family apart. Thirty Years in a Turtleneck Sweater is a moving story of painful events told through a young boy s innocent eyes. A heartbreaking tale of a son s love for his missing father and the love he finds with his adoptive mother.
