The Tomorrows That Sing

by Chris Clode
£12.99   paperback  Local Legend Publishing (2009)

The Tomorrows That Sing by Chris Clode Well this is the future. Out here. Families can't afford to keep their kids in East Europe, so they'll sell them for any dream. Market forces.
 
November 1989. Deep to the East of Berlin, where huge crowds are demonstrating on his side of the Wall.
How did Jim, a not-so-ordinary English bloke, arrive there is search of boys lost from the care system in his own home town?
Seeking the truth first in Britain with Sylvie, then in France and the Germanies with Gizande... those last few days of the old East Germany ending up locked with her in a fake hotel with that embittered little fixer pimp...
 
I'm the real social worker here. Do you know that? I do the rescuing for the kids, not that lot back in the council offices. These kids here, from Bulgaria- what chances have they got in life? Shit countries, eating shit, shit work and an early grave. They aren't born with silver spoons. But we give them a chance to earn them. They've got no education, no chance. What they do have is their beauty. And we give them the chance to learn how to use it.
 
Finally, both won and lost in his pursuit, has he found himself with his discovered family...? Or is he lost in another country, in a half-restored mountain farm - with more questions about who he is and who he ever was, than answers?
