What you need to know before your trail

Adam is a stay-at-home dad who is also working on a history of the bombing and rebuilding of Coventry Cathedral. One day, he receives a call from his daughter’s school to inform him that, for no apparent reason, fifteen-year-old Miriam has collapsed and stopped breathing.

The story of his life and the lives of his family are rewritten and re-told around this shocking central event, around a body that has inexplicably failed. This is a story of devastation and hope and the destruction of a shelter.
