Author John M. Taylor Features in the Ely Standard
John Taylor, a father of three has been raised in Littleport and has worked in 20 different countries and now calls Cambridge home. The inspiring author has been featured in Ely Standard as Littleport Society celebrates 30th birthday in style. People who attended the event said Taylor was there to give a talk and sign his best-selling book, ‘I Will Find You’ - which also sold out on the night.
People sang the littleport’s anthem which was greeted with rapturous applause from the packed and appreciative crowd. Littleport Society president and members gave a short anniversary address and the interval saw a cake cutting ceremony. His debut novel ‘I Will Find You’, a tale of mystery and intrigue which starts in wartime Fenland near Ely and then moves halfway across the globe to Australia.
The story is colourful, poignant and moving as it charts the journey of young Robbie Spalding and his path from a Dr. Barnardos 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.
