Award-winning author Melina Marchetta reopens the story of the group of friends from her acclaimed novel Saving Francesca - but five years have passed, and now it's Thomas Mackee who needs saving. After his favorite uncle was blown to bits on his way to work in a foreign city, Tom watched his family implode. He quit school and turned his back on his music and everyone that mattered, including the girl he can't forget. Shooting for oblivion, he's hit rock bottom, forced to live with his single, pregnant aunt; work at the Union pub with his former friends; and reckon with his grieving, alcoholic father. Tom's in no shape to mend what's broken. But what if no one else is either? An unflinching look at family, forgiveness, and the fierce inner workings of love and friendship, The Piper's Son masterfully redefines what it means to go home again.

I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
This was a great follow up to Saving Francesca. I loved finding out what happened to all the characters 5 years later.
A great story of a Tom and his family! Well worth listening to!!
The story, the characters...pretty much everything.
I loved Tom, and enjoyed revisiting the characters from Saving Francesca. Interesting to see where everyone was at in life, 5 years later.
I would love to listen to more by him!
