Chasing the Sun With Henry

Gary Brockwell's debut novel Chasing the Sun With Henry looks at how tragic circumstances can impact relationships, perhaps not always in the way one might expect.

Eddie Dungiven is a bored close up magician and children's entertainer. In fact, he is not only bored with his professional life, he is bored with his life in general, including his wife Sally.

Sally has two preoccupations in her life. Cleaning their house and flawed and useless 'get rich quick' scams.

To escape Eddie takes his Collie-Springer cross, Henry, for regular walks on a secluded beach.

Things start to change when he happens upon a beautiful woman called Cerys Sindon.

Eddie's relationship with his wife deteriorates still further as her behaviour worsens and becomes even more erratic and troublesome. In fact, it seems that Sally has not been honest with Eddie. But why?

Could he, should he, enter into a relationship with the alluring Cerys?

However, with the unexpected death of the person who Eddie relied on as a father figure in his life causes him to take stock of his life, what his needs are and the needs of others.

As Eddie seeks for answers he approaches medium Ignatius McKenzie for answers to his problems. Some of the answers are deeply personal revelations and have very important implications for not only Eddie but for Cerys, too. In fact, Cerys has a deep secret that she is trying to hide.

It's a very perceptive novel and works well as a good, adult romance story.

It's published by Matador at £8.99 and can be ordered here
