The powerful new bestseller from Josephine Cox -- the nation's favourite storyteller. Home is where the heart is -- but it's also where the pain lies! Young Davie Adams is all alone. Devastated, he flees his hometown of Blackburn to escape the memories of the worst night of his life. With little more than the shirt on his back he sets off on a lonely, friendless road, determined to find his father. Two people are stricken by his departure -- Judy, his childhood friend who is desperate to reveal a secret she has kept close to her heart for so long, and Joseph, his grandfather, who is racked with guilt about that fateful night. Exhausted and afraid, Davie finds friendship and a place to stay but when fate deals him another disastrous blow, he must decide whether to keep running or return to face his demons!

This is a book my mother bought me for christmas and we now have an understanding that she will never buy me a book again. She said she bought it because it was a bestseller and thought the title reflected me.

If my dear old mother had known better she would have steered clear of the bestseller list. it is rare that you find a fiction book of any merit there. The books are best sellers for a reason.

I have to give Josephine Cox credit for one thing, if you ever were stuck for a cliche then all you would need to do is open the book on a random page and you would find one there, he said knowingly (if you read the book you'll get it).

I'm sure that a great deal of people love this sort of thing. I only wish to warn those who have a love of the classics of literature that there is nothing classic about this book. I have never been so glad to finish a book in all my life. It did make me laugh though. i had great amusement in reading aloud certain sentances to my girlfriend. I was reading 'Rebecca' by Daphne Du Maurier at the same time as reading this. The books are worlds apart, and i know which side of the fence i'm happy to sit upon.
