Some are based on incidents in her personal life or on issues reported in the media and the others are pure fiction.

Bright and colourful, slow and easy, narrowboats are seen today as the epitome of a peaceful life and a wonderful way to get away from the stresses of modern living. Although true, this is a far cry from their origins as the workhorses of the early days of industrial revolution, without which Britain may never have developed as far and fast as it did. Packed with colourful illustrations and little known snippets of information, this entertaining and informative guide retraces the story of how narrowboats have evolved, how their very existence was once challenged and how they have risen phoenix-like into the holiday craft of today. Nick Corble is a renowned canal expert and has written a number of books on the waterways for The History Press, including James Brindley: The First Canal Builder and Living Aboard, the definitive guide for anyone contemplating making a life afloat.

Early reviews of DONALD'S STORY: "The book is wonderful. Sandra Merrill has achieved the remarkable task of telling three stories at once...Donald & his family then, her experience of rediscovery now, & the overall history of the 4th Fighter Group in WWII. I was moved many times & I salute her for it."--Jeffrey L. Ethell, Aviation Writer & Author of numerous military histories. "Fantastic work. Very moving. Fascinating & unusual. There are scores of WWII stories but the hook for this one is the way (the author) fell into uncovering it. This book transcends typical WWII accounts & exploration of family histories...I really believe she has created something unique & universally appealing. Very impressive."--Gary Bruggemann, WWII Historian & Educator. "The idea intrigued me from the outset: Fifty years after the death of a fighter pilot during WWII, on Christmas Day 1944, his niece resolves to write a book memorializing his life & death. I could hardly wait to read it. I had been an instructor & fighter pilot myself, & had read many books written by others in this very unique profession. But how would a niece view this fraternity? The book was worth the wait...I saw my own innocence, hope, pride, patriotism & supreme effort as the author's uncle progressed from farm to heroic action in the greatest of all wars. I will admit tears were in my eyes as the author visited his gravesite in Holland."--James L. Brewer, author of MULES, MISSILES & MEN.
