Sleepwalking through life on a quiet island near Seattle, Oliver Bruce is struck twice in one day. Emerging unscathed from an accident that leaves his SUV a crumpled mess, Oliver finds a fragment of a letter about an invention that could change the global energy landscape. The discovery brings Oliver face-to-face with the widening chasm between his mundane existence as a middle-aged family man and the richer life he longs for.
Oliver is drawn to locate the invention by embarking on a journey to the jungles of Ecuador, where he places trust in an enigmatic young beauty—while believing with increasing certainty that he is being followed.
Told against a backdrop of colorful characters and exotic locations, Goodnight Sunshine unwinds Oliver's gradual descent from youthful optimism to mid-life malaise, ultimately forcing him to re-evaluate his core beliefs and face the true source of his discontent.
Goodnight Sunshine was longlisted for the 2016 Whistler Independent Book Awards.
