The lives of two teenage sisters and their cousin boyfriends are forever changed by the mores of their time, by separation to different parts of the world, by relationships with others and by a cruel tragedy. When, after seventeen years, there are reunions and liaisons over two decades, in furtive circumstances, none can imagine that the questionable and consequential actions of one of the lovers will lead to savage repercussions for all: repercussions that will bring on further catastrophic tragedies but more importantly, risk fulfillment of their enduring loves as a foursome.

Charles P. Helmsville was born and brought up in rural England, becoming a Queen’s Scout at 15 years old and one of the earliest recipients of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (gold standard). At school, he was the captain of the first 15 rugby team and vice-captain of the first 11 cricket. Through his local Youth Club, he represented his county in a number of regional drama festivals and public speaking competitions.

He has travelled extensively and has lived in Western Australia, Victoria Australia, and Toronto, Canada, where he presently resides with his wife. He has two married sons, both lawyers, one practicing locally, the other in San Francisco, California. He also has three granddaughters and a grandson, with all of whom he spends as much time as possible.

Charles himself served half a century in the legal profession, his early years as a solicitor’s clerk, then a legal executive, and the latter 40 years as an articled student and a barrister of the Supreme Court of Ontario, practicing civil litigation as a member of The Law Society of Upper Canada. Since withdrawing from the practice, he firmly renounces the “R” word and is now an Introspectionist and a Writer.

Charles has a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of London, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Osgoode Hall Law School of York University, Toronto. He is also an Associate of the Australian College of Theology and an Officer of the Order of St. John.
