An 82-year-old grandfather has written his first book.

Keith J Wilson’s “Letters from the Past” is an historical novel, set during the English Civil War.

Mr Wilson’s son Adrian said his dad – whose daughter Amanda and her two children both live in Keighley – had loved working on the book.

“He took a couple of decades to write it – he had to get all the historical context right and did a lot of research,” said Adrian, who lives in Herefordshire.

Letters from the Past is a story of romance and adventure, providing an insight into the world of ordinary men and women during a time of considerable turmoil.
