The Good Father by Marion Husband

This book, about a man trying to pick up his life after returning from the 2nd World War where he spent time as a prisoner of war in Japan,  generated a good discussion about the relationships between fathers and sons and on how war leaves its scars, both physical and mental, on its survivors which in turn affect families and friends. The plot is very tightly woven and some of us found this made the story slightly unbelievable in parts as events began to seem too coincidental. On the whole we thought this was quite a good read.
