About the book

I suppose in the beginning it was a love story…

As a child, hers was a dark fairytale set against a wonderland of sparkling white snow, with the warm glow of candlelit holy day lanterns keeping the shadows at bay. Back then, there was innocence. And now she’ll do anything to return.

The Kingdom of Childhood is the story of a boy and a woman: sixteen-year-old Zach Patterson, uprooted and struggling to reconcile his knowledge of his mother’s extramarital affair, and Judy McFarland, a kindergarten teacher watching her family unravel before her eyes. Thrown together to organise a fundraiser for their failing private school and bonded by loneliness, they begin an affair that at first thrills, then corrupts each of them. Judy sees in Zach the elements of a young man she loved as a child, but what Zach does not realise is that, for Judy, their relationship is only the latest in a lifetime of disturbing secrets. As the walls close in, Zach finds himself needing to disentangle from premature adulthood. But the lines between adult and child have blurred, and life and sanity are unravelling faster than anyone could ever have imagined.
