One day can change your life...

It's 1977, the day of the Queen's Silver Jubilee, when a photographer captures a moment forever: a festive street party with bunting and Union Jacks fluttering in the breeze and, right in the centre of the frame, a small Asian boy staring intensely at the camera. The photo becomes infamous when it is adopted as a symbol of everything that is great and good about Britain, but what is the real story behind it? Relationships between the neighbours on Cherry Gardens are far from easy, and minor frictions threaten to erupt as the street party begins...

Fast forward to the present and that boy, Satish, is now a successful paediatric heart surgeon, saving lives and families every single day. But he's living with a secret - he's addicted to controlled prescription drugs. A message about a proposed reunion of the children in the photograph throws his life into turmoil as he thinks back to Jubilee Day, and the events that changed his life for ever.

Review:

Sharply observed and richly characterised...Unfinished business, both personal and national, shadows a perceptive story of family and nation in transition (Boyd Tonkin THE INDEPENDENT)

Period detail and sharply observed dialogue contribute to a taut novel with plenty of ethical resonance for contemporary cultural relations (James Urquhart FINANCIAL TIMES)

An extremely well-crafted story (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Satish's experiences are truly anguishing. As you're slowly let into his dreadful secret, it's an arresting read. Unputdownable (Judy Finnigan WOMAN'S OWN)
