Partly through the discovery of his family's heroic legacy in the last century and partly through his bitter sweet encounters with a colorful array of local characters, our young hero starts to find real, grown-up 'giants' on whose shoulders he can climb in his quest for true manhood.
Inspiring family war stories, murder mystery intrigue, romance and every aspect of boyish adventure combine in one sweeping epic that mixes family memories that span the last century.

The Shoulders of GiantsMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Will Houston, aged fifteen, has been packed off to the Lake District to stay with his maternal Grandparents for the summer, with the intention of giving his parents space to sort out their marital difficulties. Within moments of alighting from the coach that has delivered him to Cumbria, he is involved in the first of the many adventures that pack into his nine week stay.
These are not Enid Blyton type adventures for children, they are real adult adventures that Will is drawn into and that turn him from stroppy teenager to young adult in a surprisingly short time. Along the way he finds himself drawn into the local church community, unravels some family mysteries, helps apprehend some criminals and meets Harriet.
A real page turner and the exciting thing is that there are more Will Houston books to come.
