About ‘A Deed Undone’
In the course of their Samaritans training, Lucy and Gerald come to understand what has brought them to this point in their lives. Gerald’s desire to help others leads him elsewhere, while Lucy starts taking calls, supporting distressed and suicidal people in their time of greatest need. They soon find themselves working together in a race against time to track down Lucy’s friend Alison as she runs, haunted by past events, from herself and her memories.
Robert fell ill while writing this novel and sadly, he died just as its publication date approached. We are pleased now to hold a launch for ‘A Deed Undone’.
Robert’s wife, Jane and editor, Jill Burrows will be on hand to talk about Robert’s aims in writing this book and the valuable work done by the Samaritans.
