A sad story but told with gentle humour and hopefulness. Henry Powell feels responsible for a family tragedy that happens when he is seven years old and spends the rest of his life trying to make amends for that, but has he let opportunities pass him by in a bid to stop his family from unravelling? Well crafted characters and beautifully written.
Can one terrible moment change your life forever?
To those on the outside, the Powells are a happy family, but then a devastating accident destroys their fragile façade. When seven-year-old Henry is blamed for the tragedy, he tries desperately to make his parents happy again.
As Henry grows up, he is full of potential – a talented sportsman with an academic mind and a thirst for adventure – but soon he questions if the guilt his parents have burdened him with has left him unable to escape his anguished family, or their painful past…
With a delicate touch and masterful attention to detail, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Flock invites us to meet a man both ordinary and extraordinary, and to experience a life that has yet to be lived.
