About the Author

The author has worked in industry and has studied the eighteenth-century novel, among other subjects. He lives in Devon in the UK. This is his first novel. Author website:


"Despite its melancholic tone, the story and its characters prove to be endearing. William, for example, is characterized as someone who nurtures a deep desire to help others, and even to save the world, and his wife and daughter are shown to indisputably and unconditionally love their family members." ― Kirkus Reviews

"As the cast cycles around each other's vantage points, they suggest a new way of seeing all together-one that's both sensible and not. The plot becomes a protracted thought experiment. It taxes, probes, and pushes the boundaries of the genre, using the family's abiding love for each other to suggest a sympathetic outlook on the world at large." ― Foreword Clarion Reviews

"Difficult timeline aside, this story should appeal to careful readers who enjoy smart conversations and contemplation of life's bigger questions." ― BlueInk Review

"From celebrity connections and dizzying heights down to the bare bones of interpersonal relationships, family, and love, this heartfelt psychological drama discusses the nature of what is truly real and what ought to matter most in our lives." ― Readers' Favorite

"There's clearly a lot of passion and learning gone into this debut - almost every page bursts with thoughts, philosophies and ideas." ― Catherine Jarvie, freelance journalist, editor and copywriter.
