Close to home
Barker, Robin, 1944-2015
Books
Stories of life, love and family from the bestselling author of Baby Love. A distraught father is prevented from comforting his little boy. A baby's life is put in danger by a well-meaning but offbeat couple. Two mothers fight each other for the love of their son. A couple's desperation for a child leads to a chain of unpredictable events ...Robin Barker's fascination with families over the last six decades - their hopes and disappointments, loves and deceits - is superbly captured in ten acutely observed stories of anguish and triumph.
