A Pea Coat Goes Home is the story of a 70-year-old coat that the author and his father shared throughout their lives. The coat will survive a world war, be worn during a marriage proposal and handed down to the author as he wears it in his own youth. The coat will occupy many closets as lives change until it is ultimately returned to the ship (now a museum) where its original owner served during World War II.

- Slim "Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format."
A wonderful story that brings to life a time in history and the relationship between a son and the father he reveres. It was even more meaningful to me having grown up in one of the areas mentioned and having served at sea. It was narrated perfectly as if the narrator was relaying his very own story and not one written by another. He made me feel like I was there.
This was the first performance I have listened to by Gary A Mason, it will not be my last. Very well done sir.
I did listen to it all in one sitting. It is short enough that I would recommend listening to it without interruption.
