1963. The year The Beatles first topped the charts. The year Martin Luther King had a dream. The year Truman Bird moves his family from their home in Brighton to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest– then disappears.

For Truman’s wife, Christie, life has not turned out the way she’d imagined. How has she ended up like this? In a caravan with three children. And an absent husband.

‘Honest an unsettling, yet ultimately uplifting, this unique, wise and addictive British debut weaves themes of love, betrayal, family and childhood, and shows that eben though life has a habit of getting in the way of dreams, people find their own extraordinary ways of bouncing back.’
