About the book

A stolen season by Rodney Hall.

Adam's life has been ruined by war...A veteran of the Iraq conflict who has suffered such extensive bodily trauma that he can only really survive by means of a mechanical skeleton. Marianna's has been ruined by men...A woman who has had to flee the country after her husband lied to the wrong people. John Philip's by too much money...Until he receives a surprise inheritance in the evening of his own life. Rodney Hall presents the story of three people experiencing a period of life they never thought possible, and, perhaps, should never have been granted at all...
