As a teenager, Lee Agazzi’s life is blighted by his father’s bullying when he does not shine at school. This culminates in him being forced from the house by his angry father when he fails most of his O Levels.
Thanks to the kindness of friends, Lee finds somewhere to live and employment as an apprentice joiner. He also meets Anna, who sees beyond the traumatised teenager to the fine man he will one day become. Far from being the abject failure his father predicted Lee is actually a happily married man of substance.
When his much-loved daughter encounters the same difficulties at school, Lee finds himself in danger of responding in the same manner as his father. Her difficulties are attributed to dyslexia and Lee finally begins to understand the condition that has shaped his life. But is it too late for him to forge a reconciliation with his father?
A novel of hope and redemption – as one man struggles to overcome the many problems and issues of his life. He comes to realise that many of these stem from his own dyslexia and the misconceptions and attitudes of others which surround it.
