Description

A special reissue of a bestselling and award-winning Australian classic from popular author Steven Herrick My hand in his stops trembling, for a moment. When the paths of a runaway teenage boy, an old hobo and a rich girl intersect in an abandoned train yard, each carries their own personal baggage. Over early mornings, long walks and cheap coffee they discover, no matter how big or small, it's the simple gifts in life that really make a difference. A life-affirming look at humanity, generosity and love.
