Synopsis

WHEN DREAMS TAKE YOU AWAY

George Denton never believed in the notion of love at first-sight not when his parents regaled him with the story of how they met not when his elderly grandmother married her bridge partner not even when the prettiest girl in all the world moved to the picturesque village of Lincoln Point. But from the moment the baby who came to be called Sky let out his first wail inside the house on Archer Avenue, George knew his life would never be the same again. Here was a child orphaned at birth, a child seemingly blessed with a remarkable gift, looking to his Uncle George to teach him the lessons of life, of the power of love and the realization of dreams.

WHEN DESTINY BRINGS YOU HOME

Spanning two decades, WHEN THE WORLD WAS SMALL is filled with the memorable moments of the Denton family, events funny and sad, poignant and powerful, tragic and thrilling. It is a tale of dreams both realized and unfulfilled, and of the special relationships that help define who we are, and who we become.

From the acclaimed author of TILTING AT WINDMILLS, you won't want to miss this powerful portrait of one family and the sacrifices they make when faced with tragedy and happiness alike.
