Tom is a farmer and lives outside a small town in Australia, he has been unlucky in love and his wife has left him. When his wife returns he finds out that she is pregnant with another mans child. Tom brings this child up as his own and loves the boy dearly. After his wife goes away for a second time Tom meets Hannah a survivor of Auschwitz and the new owner of the towns bookshop he finds love again. I really like the character Tom and his son Peter and very much enjoyed this book. I would like to thank NetGalley and Faber & Faber for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
