When 9-year-old Tom Newton is saved from icy death by a man who disappears into the night, the story captures public attention. But the rescuer proves elusive and Tom’s mother begins to fear she may never be able to thank him.
Set in the weeks before Christmas, Owen’s Day is the story of a lonely man who gives too much and the family and city who insist on thanking him. Along the way it explores the value of risk-taking as a catalyst for human progress.
Christmas is one of my favourite times of year. I had enjoyed great success with The Christmas Carol Handbook, so it was perhaps not surprising that when I started writing fiction, the first thing to come to mind was a story set in December: Owen’s Day.
