Sometimes a damaged child becomes a broken man...A desperate tragedy, a life-long friend, and the long and lonely journey to find a family. Edward Carter is a bully of a man, who inspires fear in the hearts of all who meet him. Adam Carter is twelve years old, an only child with no friends nor any self confidence. His father's reign of terror over his family has Adam's mother Peggy too cowed to protect her son, so Adam's only support comes in the shape of Phil Wallis, the school bus driver. Then one afternoon, when Adam is his last drop of the day, Phil makes a life-changing decision - to accompany Adam along the darkening woodland lane to his house. But, in the house at the end of the track a terrible tragedy is unfolding, and it is one that will bind them together forever.

About Josephine Cox
Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
