He took a photo - one photo - years ago. Now the past has come back to haunt him. Accused of espionage and many similar charges, Ian faces first a trial and then a prison term with hard labour. He turned away from God years ago, but now it is only his Grandma Lucy's prayers that are keeping him going...
Themes of survivor's guilt, trauma, forgiveness and friendship mingle in this beautifully written, thought-provoking, hard-to-put down story of just a part of one man's journey. Though difficult themes are dealt with, they are covered in a sensitive way that I don't think would upset anyone. There is no real violence, the language is good and the content is clean.
Thinking about it after I had finished, I found it hard to work out why I found this so hard to put down - normally prison life isn't something I would find particularly gripping, but the author succeeded as usual. And now I'm desperately hoping for a sequel, to find out how Ian adjusted to life afterward... please?
Note that I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review and this is my considered opinion of the book.
