‘I Will Find You’ – a book by local author, John Taylor (A jolly good read!)

‘I Will Find You’, is a tale of mystery and intrigue which starts in wartime Fenland near Ely and then moves halfway across the globe to Australia.

John Taylor’s story is colourful, poignant and moving as it charts the journey of young Robbie Spalding and his path from a Dr Barnardo’s Home in Cambridge to a new life on the other side of the world. Robbie becomes Nick Thorne and this account of his arrival into adulthood is more than a little tragic and filled with unexpected twists and turns.

Touching, funny, sad and filled with drama, ’I Will Find You’ is an authentic and pacey read, gripping and compelling, and will certainly keep the readers’ attention until the last page is turned.

Expect to shed a tear for the casualties of war.

The author, John Taylor says, “I was born in Ely and brought up in Littleport although I now live in Cambridge after much globe-trotting. The book, my second, is predicted to be a best seller by the publishers. It features the fens, Mepal, Ely and Cambridge, with a large slice of Australia and some of New Zealand. The most common remark from those who have read it is ‘I couldn’t put it down.’

It is available internationally but at the moment it is only available in Littleport through the Littleport Society, and in Ely through Burrows Book Shop. Of course, it is available on Amazon too, but I like to see local business benefit first!
