Rough Music by Patrick Gale

Rough Music

Patrick Gale

If your life with your 'nearest and dearest' seems rather bleak read this -and then count your blessings. A story of complex family relationships which spans three generations. The Great Train Robbery and the subsequent jail-break of one of the leading players adds a fascinating dimension. Compelling, evocative and often incredibly moving but not for those who want a guaranteed happy ending!
