A top ten listed, New York Times bestselling memoir: 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 son.

Dashing American GI, Harry met young English girl, Laura in 1942 while stationed in Britain during WWII. 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 bemused.
