English as a Second Language/narrative tenses

Question
Hello Madam.Sometimes I get confused using the narrative tenses especially the shifts in Simple Past and Past Perfect.I want to practise the most complex exercises available on them but also require answers so that I can check my answers.Is there any resource-a book or a site that can aid my understanding of the narrative tenses?

I would be grateful.
