Bestselling author Annie Murray explores one family's suffering - plagued by two horrific accidents - over two generations.
Birmingham: Jo and Ian's marriage is hanging by a thread. One night almost two years ago, their adopted only child, Paul, twenty-three, died in a horrific accident which should never have happened. They have recently moved to a new area of Birmingham, to be near Ian's mother Dorrie, who tragically lost her husband when Ian and his sister were very young. The accident in 1957 left a terrible mark on the family, but Dorrie only really starts to talk to Jo about what happened all these years later, now that the couple are living close by.
India: Haunted by the death of her son, Jo catches a glimpse of a young boy who resembles Paul in a magazine. Reading the article, she learns of a tragedy in a land far away from Birmingham. But it touches her so deeply, it leads her to embark on a trip where she will learn about unimaginable pain and suffering. Out of tragedy, is there a chance for hope?
