A boy’s traumatized father comes home from the Second World War, but can’t make the transition to civilian life. 11-year-old Ralph lives with his mother, plays in bombed-out buildings & dreams of the day his father will come home & tell him of all his heroic battles. But when his father actually does come back, he is far from what Ralph expected: his father is sullen, withdrawn & refuses to discuss the war at all.

A New Jerusalem

Susceptible to fits of crying and uncontrollable rages, his behaviour starts to directly impact Ralph and his mother, and the community around them. This is a beautifully observed and sensitive portrayal that will help readers understand post traumatic stress disorder.

New release available in store & online.
