Synopsis

Raised in a Catholic family with a disturbed mother, a volatile father and an abusive stepfather, Lynette Robinson left home at 14 feeling unwanted and unloved. At 18 she is coerced into marriage to an older man.

Years of marital unhappiness follow as she simultaneously begins a career as a marriage counsellor. She then finds unexpected love – with the local catholic priest.

His story is told - young and naive he is easily coerced into the priesthood. However, his love for Lynette then sets him on a collision course with the Catholic Church.

Set against a harsh backdrop of 20th century New Zealand, this book shows how lives can be radically directed by others and how in spite of tragedy and losses, we can recreate our lives through making our own choices.
