This is the continuing story of a family set within the backdrop of two World Wars their uncertainties, insecurities, and struggles. The tale continues of young man from humble origins who struggles with love and life. It deals with the multi layers of life, which like an onion, when peeled, some layers bring tears but others can bring a rich flavour to life. The story confronts the equal bedfellows of joy and suffering, love and hate, good and evil, to the very depths of man's depravity. It encourages the reader, not to be a passive observer but part of their lives.

He managed to push himself back up onto his knees, yes he had been attacked he was dying he understood the pain now. He was in agony the pain was excruciating, he was bleeding to death, he couldn't breathe, tearing at his collar gasping for air, he needed help, he tried to call out but there were no words. He glanced up and a grey figure stood before him, shrouded by the cold damp evening air.
