About the Novella

In 1942 everything is going good for Tanner Hill. He has a good job, two healthy sons and a wife who loves him. As he makes lots of extra cash with his moonshine, he can afford many luxuries his neighbours cannot. And he’s not worried about conscription.
However, he soon realizes good things do not last forever. One argument after church with a disgruntled man with revenge on his mind and Tanner’s world is turned upside down. Forced into making a choice, Tanner chooses to follow his brothers and enlists. He leaves for the fighting so far away as a private in the Royal Canadian Engineers.
It will be three years until Tanner returns home. It won’t be the same.

A recent review for The Alexanders Volume 1

Angela 5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read and can’t wait for volume 2  Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 August 2021

A fascinating historical novel from Allan Hudson. Once again, Allan puts you right at the heart of the action with his particular narrative style. As a family saga that moves from Scotland to Canada, this story is not quite as action-packed as the adventure stories Mr Hudson also writes. Nevertheless it kept me turning the page. The characters are well-drawn and you can’t help but be drawn into the their story from the very first page. I’m looking forward to the next volume.
