About the Book
The author's parents, James Eulis Creasy and Nancy Hemington, grew up in two very different cultures, but they were both from hardworking, loving, and humble families, sharing a common religion, with teetotalers as matriarchs. The two families were brought together by the greatest cataclysm in history, World War II, and eventually by the love between one family's oldest child and the other family's youngest.

The Creasys from Alabama had nine children, six boys and three girls. The Hemingtons from Hampshire, England had four children, two sons and two daughters. Both of the English brothers and three of the American brothers served in the military. As the odds would have it, one of the five was killed in action. Ironically, the two “civilian” English sisters and their parents faced considerable risk of death or injury by simply being inhabitants of a community located near the German's plum target of Southampton, England. Herein lie their stories.

 

Reviews
Seldom does life offer a burst of poignancy, thrill, action and sentiment all at once. The tale of "Jim and Nancy," he of the Shoals in Alabama, she from Southampton, England, offers such an opportunity.
- John Davis, writing for the Decatur Daily
Danny has done a great job telling the stories of his now departed family members… as if channeling the consciousness of each relative, Danny describes their experiences with color and in great detail, taking the reader back in time to the various places where these events played out.
- Robert Barclift, U. S. Arrmy, Retired
I just completed reading Jim & Nancy and at the book's conclusion, they were almost like family to me. Danny did an excellent job developing his stories. I really liked his journal type writing. I could end and begin reading after any lapse of time without losing the story plot.
- Charles E. Cabler, Author of The Chains of Marley
