2010, the worst winter in years. Jim Drever, stillman at a Highland distillery, has just turned 50. His obsessions are his comfortingly predictable job, and the movies, full of fictional characters much easier to deal with than the real people he has to confront, especially his family. But life is about to get a whole lot more complicated. A strike is looming, his wife is focused entirely on their daughter s wedding, his teenage son s behaviour is becoming very weird indeed. Then the emails from Cuba start coming in, each with an excerpt from his dead mother s journal. For years, Jim has buried his grief at being abandoned by a mother who left him when he was four years old, to pursue her own dreams. Jim can t stand on the sidelines any more: the secrets in his past are coming to claim him. As the tension builds, Tom McCulloch explores with an insight that s both penetrating and bleakly comic, conflicting pressures on a fractured family and a man who has been trying to ignore his own emotions for far too long.
