ISLANDS OF SUNSHINE AND SHADOW is the story of an extraordinary man living through ordinary times, or perhaps it is the story of an ordinary man living through extraordinary times. From his childhood in the off-shore British island of Guernsey which was pretty idyllic, except for the very difficult matter of no knowing who his true parents were, to a chaotic time spent in England as a child refugee from the II World War, to where he now lives in Frankston, Southern Australia, there have been numerous good and bad times to deal with as he sometimes stumbled or hurtled along on his journey. Bernard Blestel’s life story will revive details and memories that are familiar to many readers, and will undoubtedly open the eyes of many others whose lives have taken different paths. His generosity of spirit casts a shining light on the way that he has dealt with all his adventures. There is courage, humour and compassion in this true story of a man who climbed out of the shadows and into the sunshine. ISLANDS OF SUNSHINE AND SHADOW is a gift for all of us who have doubts or fears. A shining light in a shadowy world. About the Author: Sunshine and Shadows will hold the readers interest, as the author relates his thrilling passage through life, a journey where he has both received love and given love to those who have been denied this wonderful experience. His eventful life has been filled with varied and sympathetic understanding of those in the shadows. Bernard Blestel has provided a masterly lesson in how to write a life, thus bringing us out of the Shadows and into the Light.
