A funny, touching tale examining the physical and emotional legacy of families. Sol is a very special six year old. He learned to read in the cot and his mum believes he is destined for greatness. His only imperfection is the large birthmark on his temple. His Dad has one too. So does his Grandma. Sol's mum decides to have his birthmark removed, but, is this the right thing to do? A family trip to Germany to visit a dying relative uncovers a family secret about the Second World War which is more shocking than any of them could have imagined. It seems that birthmarks are not the only things that have been passed down the generations . . . A tale of four generations of one family, each told from the perspective of a six year old, Fault Lines is a funny, touching novel which examines how the decisions and upheavals of one generation can impact upon the lives of the next.
