A moral fable for our divided times. A compelling story of renewal for us all and especially readers with a conscience and a hope that we can be better.
Sometimes, things just happen for a reason and beyond our control, like not getting on a fated aeroplane. Gabriel Webber is an esteemed and fabulously wealthy surgeon. He wants for nothing. He is the man with everything? A man with a plane to catch who is about to make an impossible discovery about himself.
What readers have to say
“Sometimes shocking, sometimes profoundly moving, the story pulls you along at a ferocious pace and I did not see the ending coming. If you want to read something which entertaining but also challenges how you see, this book is for you.”
“A thought-provoking book which is beautifully written and the way it ends is amazing and something I didn’t see coming or expect.”
“It’s full of pathos, and humour as you’d expect from a leading comedian, and is a true picture of our lives today. Basically, it’s a bloody good read and great entertainment from an author who really knows his craft. Highly recommended”
“The author makes much of readers being confounded by the ending and I took up the challenge gleefully, confident that I could pick it out. And blow me down, I didn’t. I didn’t see it all. The most satisfying and clever conclusion to a fiendishly clever book. Bravo.”
“I loved this book. I finished it in one sitting and it, along with Holland’s other books, were miracles after my months long reading block.”
“…if you find yourself on the rocks when you pick up this book, you might just find the answers you are looking for. I promise, no matter where you are in life, there is something in this piece that will resonate.”
