Following a run-in with his ex-wife’s creditors, Greg Alison decides to uproot. Quickly! Morally and physically bankrupt, all he has is his faithful old dog, a wedge of banknotes he’s squirreled away, and the use of a tiny caravan to live in. In the midst of winter.
He plans to do little other than eat, sleep, and drink the days away in the idyllic Cornish village he chances upon, though a serendipitous opportunity to see his children in Southern France proves too good to resist.
The trip doesn’t work out as well as he’d like, and all is not as it should be on his return to Trevelly, forcing him to make himself scarce… Again.
Greg uses the change of location as an opportunity to chase some hidden treasure, and with the help of new friends - Wyndham in Bromyard, and Eddy King in Trevelly - he uncovers much more than he bargained for.
Completing the circle, however, proves a more complex and difficult task than he anticipated.
