Destroyed by a fire, plunged into smoke; the place that the orphans called home seemed irretrievable along with the smog filled memories it had left behind. But St. Aloysius is being built again, and the orphans are about to find out that no one can run from the past – no matter how much time has passed. Each will be forced to relive what it meant to them: mysteries will be unravelled, secrets revealed and truth ignited. A powerful reunion is about to occur, one not to everyone’s liking.
In 2009 a group of creative writers from King’s College London had the brilliant idea of writing a collaborative novel together. Little did they know just how much work it would be – at the time we were filled with bright-eyed, bushy-tailed enthusiam about this epic and awesome project that would really help us improve our writing skills and showcase our talent; and to be fair – it did. As well as honing numerous other skills, including but not limited to: editting, type-setting, cover design and the somewhat elusive art of working in a team without wanting to kill someone. It took us two years to complete – from initial draft ideas for individual chapters to the finally getting the book up on Amazon and Lulu; but we made it there in the end and I’m really proud of what we have achieved together.
