By Lloyd Jones

A Memoir

As Christchurch lies in ruins after the catastrophic earthquake of February 2011, Lloyd Jones begins a search that takes him through childhood memories of puzzling events to Pembroke Dock in Wales, and finally to the discovery of a devastating court transcript.

On this extraordinary journey, he pieces together the fragments of a story that has been buried in his family for a lifetime. A mother who gave up her daughter, a naval captain drowned at sea, a marriage to save a child.

And a truth that changes everything.
