Max Patterson is a successful novelist, living as a recluse in a Gothic Irish mansion. He likes to think he is self-sufficient, but in fact he's been in a wheelchair since a childhood trauma. So when he is told that his best friend has been killed in a car accident, leaving him responsible for two children, Max couldn't be more alarmed. Nor, for that matter, could the children in question. Fifteen-year-old Caroline and her younger brother Nigel are shell-shocked after the death of their parents, and as unhappy as Max about their move to Ireland. How will Max cope with the teenage problems of alcohol, sex and exploding hormones? And how can he ask Kate, his attractive, articulate Girl Friday, with whom he is rapidly falling in love, to spend the rest of her life with a man who may never walk?show more
