Description

Being Tom isn't easy. Born and raised on the outskirts of Glasgow, the Son of an abusive, alcoholic Father and loving but downtrodden and beaten Mother, Tom seems to have survived his childhood pretty well. In a long term relationship with Rose, a beautiful, intelligent but flawed woman, Tom almost has it all. But the brain is a fragile organ. Unable to cope with the devastating results of a car crash and feeling deep inside that his life is cursed to failure, Tom in something approaching a fugue state and without telling family, friends or Rose, sets out to follow his ancestral roots in Australia. In a short while he settles into a place that is as close to paradise as he can imagine. He meets and marries Fabienne, a French immigrant living in a small coastal town in New South Wales. Life seems to have finally delivered everything he ever dreamed it could. But the past has a way of haunting us and Tom finds that his soon catches up with him with devastating consequences.show more
