It is said that home is where the heart is, but when war rips a young man from everything he knows and loves, will he be able to find his way back to what truly matters? In post-war rural France, following the devastation, physical and emotional, of WW II, a man moves his house, using only a cow and a cart, six kilometres to the other side of his village. Where he painstakingly re-builds his home. By hand. It takes him seven years. Why would anyone do such a thing? The war was won - could he now win the peace? History, secrets and painful truths collide in this astonishingly human, warm and emotive debut from writer George Costigan.
