To reveal more of the plot would ruin it, but the book's granite-hewn family values and treacly sentimentality tell us we are in prime Parsons territory.

Synopsis

One family go in search of their dreams in a tropical paradise – and find themselves.
The Finn family – Tom, Tess and twins Rory and Keeva – leave their crime-ridden city in search of a better life in the sun. Their destination is the idyllic beach of Hat Nai Tang on the island of Phuket, Thailand.
Phuket is a tropical paradise where the children swim with elephants, the gibbons sing love songs in the rain forest and a young family is free tog row next to a sea as still as a looking glass.
But paradise has a darker side and disasters made by both man and nature conspire to shatter the tropical idyll – and threaten to tear the Finn family apart.
