LoveReading View on The Brave

This will sweep you up in its grasp in the same way The Horse Whisperer did from its intriguing start and through the past and present stories as the life of Tom Bedford intriguingly unfolds. A gripping read and no doubt perfect for a Hollywood film script but it’s always good to have read the book beforehand so be one of the first!

The Brave Synopsis

The motto of the boarding school to which Tommy Bedford is dispatched is Fortune Favours the Brave. It's 1959 and the school bristles with bullies and sadistic staff. Tommy, a quirky loner, obsessed with cowboys and Indians, needs all the bravery he can summon. Salvation comes when his glamorous actress sister is swept off to Hollywood by one of his heroes, TV cowboy Ray Montane. But with the Cold War looming, the sinister side of Tinseltown seeps through and Tommy and Diane soon find themselves in jeopardy. Forty years on, Tommy has to confront his boyhood ghosts when his own son finds himself charged with murder.
