A family torn apart. A friendship stronger than blood. A dark journey that will change two young boys forever.
After his mother and sister are killed in a tragic accident, ten-year-old Will struggles to hold on to what is left of his life. His father, consumed by grief and rage, forces Will to find solace elsewhere. An abandoned field is where he finds that solace, exploring the afternoons away with his best friend, Eddie.
But when he's attacked during one of his excursions, the one place where Will feels he can escape his broken life is no longer safe. His misfortune soon escalates far beyond black eyes and bruised ribs, threatening to destroy his psyche as well.
Beaten and stripped of everything, Will is forced to decide how far he will go to put an end to the torment.
In the spirit of films like Stand By Me and novels like The Catcher in the Rye, The Field is a coming-of-age novel that explores the debilitating effects of loss, the unbreakable bonds of friendship, and the ghosts of our past that haunt us for the rest of our lives.
