Michael William Molden

The Strawberry Garden tells the story of Richard Deacon, a man whose single-minded determination, bordering on obsession, gained him everything a man could wish for. However his relentless pursuit of financial success cost him his marriage and estranged his only son. His business dealings take him to France and there he meets by chance a penniless deaf gypsy boy. Over time he begins to realise that his wealth means nothing at all without friendship and love. When his unlikely relationship with the boy comes under the scrutiny of the local authority and becomes the subject of growing gossip he is forced to make a decision. Does he risk everything he has taken a lifetime to build to maintain his relationship with the boy or does he turn his back and walk away?
