Abstract

After serving in the army, Lewis's grandfather founded the Victory Barber Shop in Manchester as a tribute to all things Great and British. But three generations later the shop is being attacked by anti-war protestors and Lewis isn't sure which side he's on any more. He spends half his time trying to save his broken family and the other half trying to escape it: his walls are full of glamorous places he wants to go, and his head full of dreams of adventures he'd like to have. So when he receives an invitation from a woman called Christy to join the charity Hope for Newborns, 'designed to help you repair your own damaged life and the lives of others', he finds it impossible to resist. Soon he's keeping secrets, breaking the law, and imagining something much bigger than escape…Hope for Newborns is full of comedy and sadness and the complications of modern life without faith - a warm and funny love story about two young people who've seen enough of the world to know they want more from it than it wants to give.
