Tears for Food (Kobo eBook)
A family is a place where you expect to be loved and nurtured. Where you can develop and grow knowing that you are loved and valued. But what if the family you live in is a place where everything you do is considered wrong: where no love is to be found and you are considered worthless. A place where you heart shrinks from the relentless onslaught of constantly living in fear. What can you cling to so that you not only survive but also develop as a person? Where can you go to and find a place of safety, refuge and peace.
Set in the village of St Peter’s in the 1950s, Tears for Food tells the story of Richard who though living in a dysfunctional family, with a controlling and unstable mother, is able to find solace through his singing in his local church choir; his friendships with his fellow choristers and his first venture into love with someone else. His life outside the family is the only place where he is able to find a place of safety, refuge and calm. But will it be enough?
