Publisher's Summary

When 20-year-old Lenny Barnes, paralysed in a rugby accident, commits suicide in the presence of Barnaby Johnson, the much-loved priest of a West Cornwall parish, the tragedy's reverberations open up the fault-lines between Barnaby and his nearest and dearest. The personal stories of his wife, children and lover illuminate and the gulfs of unspoken sadness that separate them all. Across this web of relations scuttles Barnaby's repellent nemesis – a man as wicked as his prey is virtuous.

So beautifully written

Oh how I love Patrick Gale's writing and what a joy to have a new book to listen to. He writes so beautifully that I could read his work over and over again. This, like all his work is a fairly slow, beautiful listen, well narrated with great characterisation. Not 5 stars because it doesn't live up to 'Notes from an exhibition' - one of my all time favourites!

Classic Gale!

I bought this book well knowing what to expect. I've been an ardent fan of Patrick Gale and have read most of his works. This is a well crafted and entertaining story - from the heart breaking start to the heart warming end it doesn't disappoint.

We need more Gale books on here - Facing the tank and Little bits of baby to name but two!!
