Overview

A UK best-selling memoir by Kevin Machell.

Cast No Stones is the extraordinary true story of a lonely U.S. soldier, an impoverished English rose from a slum in northern England and the damaging impact their romance was to have on Kevin, their confused, illegitimate son.

Dashing American GI, Harry met young English girl, Laura in 1942 while stationed in Britain during WW2. There followed a lengthy and passionate affair resulting in Laura giving birth to a son while Harry’s unit were preparing to land on the notorious Omaha Beach.

Machell recounts the often sad, sometimes hilarious experiences of a “GI boy” growing up in a post-war British slum. He details his search for his long-lost father, their emotional first meeting in America and the dramatic twist that left Kevin and all around him in a state of shock.

    Enjoyable memior. Highly recommended.

    This was an interesting read. It was well written, engaging, and emotional. It is money well spent. Another excellent book on the Nook is the novel "The Partisan" by William Jarvis. Both books deserve A+++++

    I found this book after searching the B&N website for a WW 2 nonfiction. Normally this book would be outside of my normal genre of interests
    but I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed and finished in one sitting. Avery heartrending story.

    This was a disappointment.  Yes, I was intrigued by the search and the results, but this book needed major editing and the author didn't get to the meat of the conflict.  The question remains, what made his mother make the poor decisions she did and how did that make he him the weak man he was.  And for the record, I am sooooo tired of author's who tell me they wrote this for others with similar circumstances.  The purpose of writing is for the write to understand himself and by sharing that, perhaps reach others who are the same or curious.  Yes, he found his parentage, but he didn't find or explain himself.  As I said, disappointing.

    Very enjoyable

    The author has a very forthright voice even though he is writing about very personal and emotional events in his own life. The description of English life during WW II was very interesting.

    The story was somewhat interesting, but the writing was amateurish, and needed more depth. It read more like a personal dairy but without the depth of emotion.
