When We Were Young

Roper, Richard

  0 Reviews

Joel Thompson and Theo Hern have history ... once childhood friends, they have been estranged since an accident that confined Alice, Theo’s sister, to a wheelchair.

Recalling a pact they made to walk the Thames Path to London when they turned thirty, Joel persuades Theo to don his walking shoes. Along the 184 miles of the trek, their lives are laid bare, exposing the secrets and lies that have landed them where they are today: one a successful television comedy writer hiding a secret and the other living a lie and about to be evicted from his parent’s shed.

Written with heart and humour, this is a poignant story of the power of friendship, the importance of honesty and the unexpected benefits of a good long walk.
