The First Day, Hardback Book

The First Day Hardback

Hardback

Description

Outside an east Belfast mission hall, pastor and family man Samuel Orr meets Anna, a young Beckett scholar.

They embark on an intense love affair, their connection fuelled by their respective passions.

When Anna falls pregnant, the affair is revealed. The repercussions are slow to emerge but inescapable, and the fallout is shocking, cruel and violent. More than thirty years later Sam, their son, is in New York, living a steady, guarded life, his childhood and family safely abandoned. But the sins of the fathers are not to be so easily buried; the past crashes inevitably into the present, and Sam is forced to confront the fears he has kept close for decades.
