Homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, or for a home which may have never been.
An intense form of longing or nostalgia, wistfulness.
The grief for the lost places of your past.
Seen through the eyes of an innocent, shrewd young boy, Now I Let You Go recaptures an idyllic childhood through the memory of an older man. A lost time of love, endless summer adventures and picnics as Johnny spent his holidays on the Devonshire coast with his sister Annie and their devoted but strict nanny Jessie. We recapture the sounds, scents, love, adventures and gentleness that surrounded the young boy as the outside world prepared to go to war.
And yet, looking back, the lamps still shine.
The story you said I should write.
Now I Let You Go.
Expected Autumn 2023.
