Reviews for The Piper's Son
The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
This is a companion novel to Saving Francesca, a book I absolutely loved.
Thomas Mackee wants oblivion. Wants to forget parents who leave and friends he used to care about and a string of one-night stands, and favourite uncles being blow to smithereens on their way to work on the other side of the world.
But when his flatmates turn him out of the house, Tom moves in with his single, pregnant aunt, Georgie. And starts working at the Union pub with his former friends.
And winds up with his grieving father again.
And remembers how he walked away from Tara Finke two years ago, after his uncle's death.
In a year when everything's broken. Tom realises that his family and friends need him to help put the pieces back together as much as he needs them.
This book works well as a stand-alone novel but fans of Saving Francesca will find it especially moving. by Feliss
