Breaking and Entering

book | 1994
Daniel has reached the dangerous age of forty and has just embarked on his first affair – a source of mingled guilt and ecstasy. His wife Penny seems unaware, but, worryingly, Pippa, his thirteen-year-old stepdaughter, has stopped speaking. The pressures slowly build, until at last Daniel agrees to visit a Welsh healer who has set up camp on the site of a derelict lead-mine in one of the remotest parts of Wales.

In a dramatic climax, father, daughter and healer are finally reconciled as Daniel exchanges his narrow view of life for one more open to mystery and the numinous, and at last understands the healer’s words about grace ‘breaking and entering’ his soul.
