A sequel to A Note in the Margin
David stared as his bare toes curled into the carpet. He concentrated on relaxing them, letting them straighten so he could see they were clean. There was no dirt lodged between his toes or ingrained along his nails…. The skin was smooth and without calluses caused by old boots and no socks. David’s breathing eased.
Christmas can be a time of love and joy, but to three men at the bookstore called Margins, it also brings reflection on what was and what will be, highlighting the importance of home and family during a hot Australian Christmas.
Their lives are intertwined by the bookstore, but individually David has difficulty reconnecting with the son he knew, John discovers something about the father who abandoned him, and Jamie braces himself for what he thinks will be his first Christmas on his own.
A Christmas tale that tells of past, present and hints at things to come.
Book Two in the series.
