".......................I had fully intended to watch Downton Abbey last night but found I could not put the book down and so recorded the programme instead"

Hooks you from the start and never lets go!
"A fantastic read, gets you hooked and never lets go. Vaughan manages to intertwine religion, greed, love and the rest in a gripping narrative that had me reading through the night! The characters come to life and he manages to make you really feel with them and for them.
The highlights are the wonderful descriptions of locations that can transport you instantly from the hustle and bustle of central London to the glitz and then glamour of Manhattan before whisking you away to a serene lakeside in quiet old New Hampshire. Utterly sublime."

Tom Vaughan's gift for story-telling captured my attention right from the start and never disappointed. Let's hope this is the first of many
"A not to be missed book by a talented new author. Tom Vaughan's gift for story-telling captured my attention right from the start and never disappointed. Let's hope this is the first of many."
Unbelievable from a first time author.
"Vaughan creates a vibrant narrative that grips you as the reader throughout. He seamlessly moves across London, The Atlantic and along the Eastern Seaboard of the US making you feel at home in every location.
This is an extraordinary achievement from a first time author, I hope to see much more from him in the future."

"In a word - amazing. I so enjoyed reading it and got so totaly hooked on the storyline that I have for the past week been going to bed early so that I can read a few more chapters. I am full of admiration for the way you knitted together disability, religion, love and greed into a truly moving story."

"I cannot come up with any words to explain how much I enjoyed this book. I hated for it to end. I will so miss my friends.
I think that it was the most touching book that I have ever read."

.... it entertained me, made me think, and reinforced what most of us 'know' but can forget.

A fan favorite at Morgan Hill Bookstore in New London, New Hampshire!
Over 130 copies sold - more than To Go Set a Watchmen.
"This is a hugely enjoyable novel from a natural storyteller. There’s a deep humanity and compassion in this novel which is all the more moving and convincing for being in an uneasy relationship with religion. Tom Vaughan’s themes are huge and archetypal – love, loss, self-loss, and redemption – but the way he explores them is so warmly human that I became totally caught up in the characters and their interconnected stories. He has a talent for creating characters who seem to live and breathe outside the covers of the book and to inhabit our world with all its rich complexities. His evocation of the New Hampshire countryside is simply wonderful."
