The Dart Players
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Dart Players
Can the past set you free…?When the members of the Hand and Flower Darts Club set out on a day trip across the Channel to take in the sights of Boulogne, they can’t begin to imagine how the day will end…Fred Collins has been planning and waiting for this moment — the moment he proudly takes charge — and is keen to see their little adventure go off without a hitch.However, his fellow team members have no interest in sticking together and it isn’t long before secret desires start landing these Englishmen into hot water.Fred finds himself in an embarrassing situation as he attempts to find a nice pair of beige nylons for his wife.The team captain, Charley Brewer, has spent the entire day searching Boulogne for some pretty French girls.Trevor Hilgrove’s activities — while outwardly unremarkable — net him hundreds of pounds of smuggled goods to take back to England.Luke Grenfell, hoping only to immerse himself in the French literary and artistic scene, finds himself repeatedly called upon to act as a sympathetic ear as one after another of his companions finds himself in a fix. As for Jim Carver, it’s been a lifetime since he set foot on Boulogne.He was Sergeant Jim Carver then, of the 25th Lancers, thick as thieves with his mate George Holden and always up to his elbows repairing tanks.But George is long gone, buried in a cemetery in Boulogne, and the only memories Jim has of his time in Boulogne are of a little girl called Marie-Josephe.To his astonishment, he encounters the quite grown up, and engaged, Marie-Josephe at the cemetery as he visits George’s grave, and finds himself drawn into his past with such intensity that he starts to question the direction of his future. Six men make the crossing from England to France and lose themselves in the streets of Boulogne.But only four of them will make the return voyage…The Dart Players is a thought provoking novel about letting go of the past and embracing your future.Praise for Jerrard TickellTickell writes “with an eye for the adventure and drama… and often uncommon courage.
