A contemporary fiction novel about the friendship of two men and their love for the same woman. 

Dave and Edward are two lonely men who find a connection neither expected. When Dave and Edward meet at the local Killcare Men's Shed, they form an unlikely friendship.  

Dave was married to Edward's wife, Faith, for a short time. He does his best to keep the secret away from Edward. As his friendship with Edward grows, Dave carries his guilt as a shield by not allowing anyone to become too close to him. 

Dave is devastated when Edward finds out about his marriage and wants nothing to do with him. But what Dave isn't telling Edward is that Faith was part of Dave's life longer than Edward knows. This is a secret Dave doesn't want anyone to know.  

Set against the backdrop of Killcare, a sleepy, seaside town, Dave navigates his way from there to Northern Queensland and England. His return to Killcare sees him make good friends, find his DIY talents and miss Faith more than ever.
