The Echo of a Troubled Soul is a tale of family and friendship that also deals with the consequences of grief, pain, sorrow and loss. It is a story of redemption on the journey of recovery.
Following a spate of tragedies, Tom is left alone; weighed down by bereavement and consumed with grief. His patience and self-control have been stretched to the limit. He goes in search of comfort and companionship and, unfortunately, finds them in alcohol. However, this turns out to be the wrong step in the right direction. It is his irrational behaviour during one drunken episode that brings Tom, Larry, Jane and Nora together.
Rescuing Tom from his descent into self-destruction proves to be a fateful decision for Larry, Jane and Nora. Little do they realise at the time, but they each hold the key to unanswered questions in their own lives too.
