Turbulent Wake

by Paul. E Hardisty

Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

Turbulent Wake Synopsis

A stark, stunning and emotive new novel from the bestselling author of the Claymore Straker series.

Ethan Scofield returns to the place of his birth to bury his father. Hidden in one of the upstairs rooms of the old man's house he finds a strange manuscript, a collection of stories that seems to cover the whole of his father's turbulent life. As his own life starts to unravel, Ethan works his way through the manuscript, trying to find answers to the mysteries that have plagued him since he was a child. What happened to his little brother? Why was his mother taken from him? And why, in the end, when there was no one else left, did his own father push him away? Swinging from the coral cays of the Caribbean to the dangerous deserts of Yemen and the wild rivers of Africa, Turbulent Wake is a bewitching, powerful and deeply moving story of love and loss ... of the indelible damage we do to those closest to us and, ultimately, of the power of redemption in a time of change.
