The Frank business

Glazebrook, Olivia, 1976-2020
Books, Manuscripts
After Frank drops down dead in Heathrow Arrivals on Christmas Eve, his estranged daughter Jem is called in to identify the body and is left wondering why he was travelling to London in the first place, the day before Christmas, with no bags or belongings - just his wallet, passport and car key. But as Jem impulsively travels back to Frank's house in France - a house she hasn't been in since she was a child - she puts together the same realisation that Frank had, shortly before his death. Frank has a son, too, who he had never known about. Jem has a brother. Frank has died of a congenital heart defect. A defect he may have passed onto his daughter - or onto his son. She must tell him, and she wants to meet her brother, but in attaining her own family, she will rip apart another.
