Publisher's Summary

Keggie Carew grew up in the gravitational field of an unorthodox father who lived on his wits and dazzling charm. As his memory begins to fail, she embarks on a quest to unravel his story, and soon finds herself in a far more consuming place than she had bargained for.

Tom Carew was a maverick, a left-handed stutterer, a law unto himself. As a member of an elite SOE unit he was parachuted behind enemy lines to raise guerrilla resistance in France, then Burma, in the Second World War. But his wartime exploits are only the start of it....

is a manhunt. Keggie takes us on a spellbinding journey, in peace and war, into surprising and shady corners of history, her rackety English childhood, the poignant breakdown of her family, the corridors of dementia and beyond. As Keggie pieces Tom - and herself - back together again, she celebrates the technicolour life of an impossible, irresistible, unstoppable man.

Foreword and afterword read by the author.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying photographs will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Superb"

    I loved every moment of this audiobook. A reviewer has written that the book was too long, but I wouldn't have missed a word of it. Better still, the reading is fully up to the superb, funny, heartbreaking story. Thank you, Peggy Carew.

    "A real struggle"

    Did not enjoy at all. Confusing as an audio book. Would not recommend at all.

    Story
    "Interweaves brilliantly the past and present"
    What made the experience of listening to Dadland the most enjoyable?

    The unfolding story of dementia told with regret together with the discovery of Dad's past told with enthusiasm and excitement.
