Summary

Set in Britain during the 1950s, this moving and evocative novel follows the intertwined fates of people crossing boundaries in their lives - from growing older to growing up, from first love to leaving home. Vividly conveying the spirit of the mid-century and the profound social changes taking place at the time, this is an enthralling successor to the award-winning The Soldier's Return and A Son of War.

Critic reviews

"He has laid the foundations for one of the finest literary sagas of post-war Britain." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bragg has returned to the subject of Wigton many times over his long career as a novelist and BBC commentator, and his deep affection and knowledge of the place give strength to this coming-of-age story." (Publishers Weekly)
"McGann has a wonderful voice, and he transitions well from the angst Joe feels when experiencing his first love to the maturity and judgment Joe exhibits in dealing with more complex situations." (AudioFile)
