Sometimes you can go home again. Dave Burke cannot forget his past. Nor can he forgive himself for the tragedy that cost him everything he ever loved, a tragedy he may have prevented.. Now, two years later, strange things are happening, things that suggest there may be hope for him after all. The power of love. Is it strong enough to conquer time itself?

I received a copy from the author as part of Rosie Amber’s book review team

Dave Burke is going through hell, a recovering alcoholic, guilt and loss his constant companions. His story is a sad and tragic one. But all is not as it appears.

This is a very moving and compelling piece written with much feeling and delicacy and, even though it’s a relatively short novella, I found it very easy to become involved in Dave’s life and feel for the pain he is suffering. His character is skilfully written and believable, as are the secondary characters.

The author’s narrative ‘voice’ is strong and I was swept up in Dave’s story straight away, able to visualise what he saw and appreciate what he felt.

His friends told him it would get better. Time heals, they said. Time is a cosmic bandage that protects the wound beneath it, protects it from further injury, and eventually when the bandage comes off, all that’s left is a ragged pink scar…..

…..He had taken the time but the wounds still bled.

I love the magical aspect, how it’s worked through the book and is an integral part of the unexpected conclusion.

I look forward to reading more from this author.
