Our Fragile Lives

A human drama set in the East Midlands and Cornwall England. It tells the tale of a family and the trials and tribulations that they are faced with. It tells of how a decision made with the very best of intentions isn't always the best decision. It shows us that the benefit of foresight is a useful gift but regretting in hindsight is a pointless exercise. When Tom and Grace Harrison discover that their mentally challenged nubile daughter is pregnant, their world is shattered. Sixteen year old Verity denies having had sexual relations with her boyfriend Paul and begs her parents not to tell him. Her parents remain in the dark regarding the father of Verity's child but with the help of the rest of the family, a plan is put into action. The plan will benefit Verity's sister June; but at what cost? Lives will be lost, relationships will be tested as secrets and lies threaten to surface at any moment. The fragility of live and fatal actions are a constant theme but despite the serious subject, the story isn't lacking in humour; ensuring an enjoyable read.
