The Reading: Carnival Sky by Owen Marshall

Separated from his wife Lucy, immersed in his journalistic career and lost in his own grief for his baby daughter Charlotte, Sheff has become distant from his family. Yet, with encouragement from his sister Georgie, he joins her to return to Alexandra to support his parents. Although he is initially reluctant to assume the role of a dutiful son, Sheff finds this quiet time spent with his dying father, Warwick, brings an unexpected closeness and an acceptance of where he is in his own life.
