Life in a tatty caravan isn’t much fun for Tanya.  Having given up her previous life on the wishes of her dying mum, she now lives at the Glad Heart Farm caravan park – with no job, no money and no family.  They may not be related, but two people are always there for her – Rob the artist, and Tanya‘s best friend and protector, Hilary.  But Tanya’s life is about to be transformed when she rediscovers the father that she thought was dead.  And he’s living in squalor only a short train ride away. 

This is a quirky tale of hoarding, reunited family, marital misery, joy and help and love, proving there’s certainly more than one way to have a happy ending. ‘Finding Dad’s is a re-release and re-writing of Lesley Atherton’s ‘Past Present Tense’. A wonderfully thought-provoking book, under either author’s name.


The Author

I love the human condition’s simultaneous strength and frailty, as well as the innate ability we all possess to reflect on both and to thereby discover and understand more of our own personal idiosyncrasies. Art and literature grant us unbelievable vicarious pleasures and pains, and we will only grow from their appreciation.I’m a female parent, craftsperson and writer, embracing middle age and the joy that writing brings.If you enjoyed this book, you’ll find more publications available from Meredith Schumann and Scott Martin Productions on Amazon.”
