Keggie Carew grew up in the gravitational field of an unorthodox father who lived on his wits and dazzling charm. As his memory begins to fail, she embarks on a quest to unravel his story, and soon finds herself in a far more consuming place than she had bargained for. Tom Carew was a maverick, a left-handed stutterer, a law unto himself. As a member of an elite SOE unit, he was parachuted behind enemy lines to raise guerrilla resistance in France, then Burma, in the Second World War. But his wartime exploits are only the start of it... Through her rackety English childhood, the poignant breakdown of her family, the corridors of dementia and beyond, Keggie pieces herself - and Tom - back together again, and celebrates the life of an impossible, irresistible, unstoppable man.
