The Comfort of FigseBook - 2009
The Comfort of Figs is the unforgettable story of the birth of a city, the power of obsession and the burden of a family secret. As a city is made, a family's destiny is changed forever. 1939. A bridge is built, and a country town becomes a city. Three young men forge a close friendship as they lab our precariously high above the river, but one slip transforms their lives. A generation later, Robbie, a young landscaper, is grappling with those who should be closest to him - his father, whose past is linked with the iconic bridge, and his girlfriend, Freya, who is left shattered after a vicious assault.
