Summary

The Prime children grew up in a bleak North Country farmhouse called the Beacon. Colin married and went to work on a neighbouring farm. Bernice married locally, too. May stayed behind at the Beacon, the spinster daughter looking after ageing parents. And then there was Frank, Frank who was always watching.

Frank was the one who got away. He left for London and Fleet Street, but journalism was not enough. Frank wanted fame and money... and he got them, by writing about his old home, his family, his past - as he remembers it...

Average Read. Disappointing ending.

I Listened all the way through with a degree of interest but I was not at all taken with this book. It was just OK.
