Everything There Is
It is 2097. A young girl moves house with her family. She, like many other young women, keeps a diary … a journal … (or whatever the right word may be). It records her thoughts and feelings about her new young friend Darlene, Darlene’s brother, a whole set of other characters in her life; and her feelings about her various relatives, including Granny – especially Granny.
As time goes on she gets drawn into thinking about family, friendship, love, nature, history, dangers, decision-making, and the world in general.
The more she experiences, the more she thinks and the more she learns: The more she finds out the more she sees things in terms of puzzles to be solved.
Who or what is the System? How does it work? Why is she starting to get mysterious messages? What is the best thing to do?
Four very different men find themselves together in a small ward of a hospital in Manchester (UK). It is the mid-1950s and society is undergoing many changes, which exert influences in the life of each of the men.
During the few days on the ward the interests and values of the men begin to interact. Their personal histories begin to intertwine. They learn things about each other and about themselves – some of which have repercussions over the next fifteen years.
The story explores issues of duty and loyalty; of individuality and society; of progress and restraint; of reliance and independence; of morality and principles; and of strength and weakness.
