The new bestseller from the country's number one storyteller is a deeply moving and powerful tale of love and courage and a sacrifice no man should be asked to make.
The story begins in 1952 when three strangers meet in a churchyard. One is a local farmer, Ben Morris, walking through the churchyard from his farmhouse. The other two - Lucy and Eileen Baker - are mother and daughter, bringing flowers to lay at the resting place of a man by the name of Barney Davidson. There is an air of mystery about them which greatly intrigues Ben. The extraordinary events that follow keep Ben and Eileen at the centre. As the story unfolds, the years fall away.
Unsuspecting people are drawn together from both sides of the Atlantic. At long last the real truth about Barney Davidson is known. He was indeed a man amongst men. What he did changed all their lives in ways that could never have been imagined.
