About the Book

It is the early 1940s; Jack is a young man leaving university at odds with himself. Set aside from his peers fighting in the Second World War he tries to make a career in banking but finding himself a square peg in a round hole, decided to enter the teaching profession which takes him to urban and rural schools in post war Britain. This is the story of his many escapades. It is the tale of how he handles work, romantic attachments and manages to wriggle out of the tightest of situations.  Jack’s story is true of all of us who go through life searching.

Then suddenly opportunity knocks for him – it is an opportunity you’d have to be mad to take – he takes the plunge, but at the end he is in for a surprise.

‘The Life that Jack Built’ teaches us about the demons within ourselves and makes us question if destiny is mapped out for us all.

A fascinating and heart-warming tale that is personal, historical and humorous with moments of passion, pathos and fear.
