Product description

Product Description

Can you earn respect and love within your own family if you cannot provide them with more than bare survival? Are there any ethical and moral boundaries you would not cross, any humiliation you would not bear, while trying to make enough money to enable your child to build a life better than yours? Boris faces an uphill struggle while he desperately tries to climb the financial and social ladder. The break-up of his marriage and the loss of contact with his daughter Luna convince him that lack of money is the cause of all his problems. When he, after humiliating failures, eventually manages to amass serious wealth by dubious means, Luna judges and rejects him. But when Luna is almost overcome by her own adversities, Boris fights for her to accept him and to help her through her tragedy. Battling alongside him is Simona, his only friend from his dark past. Will Boris, Luna and Simona, each grappling with their own black dogs, find a way to connect with each other and become a family? Can they ever be content, earning little and living at a lower social level? To Be Had is a harrowing account of people wrestling to find their own identity and peace of mind in a world where money seems to control everything around them and for them.
