Publisher's Summary

Just how badly do you want to find paradise?
When Tom Finn is almost jailed for confronting two burglars in his own home, this taxi driver takes his young family to live on the tropical island of Phuket, Thailand. Phuket is all the Finn family dreamed of - a tropical paradise where the children swim with elephants, the gibbons sing love songs in the jungle, the Andaman Sea is like turquoise glass, and this young family is free to grow. But both man-made disaster and the unleashed forces of nature shatter this tropical idyll for Tom Finn's family.
Catching the Sun is a gripping and moving story of a family who goes in search of Paradise - and end up discovering themselves.

A good bit of escapism

An all round good book. Perfect escapism, with reality thrown in, just to remind you escape isn't always all it's cracked up to be. A bit of everything and an enjoyable romp into the hard reality of living in a fantasy land.
