Communication with his mother and sister is minimal. His father? He's just a black hole in his memory. Then he unlocks a family secret hidden in the garage . . . Hiding from the bullies in a disused church he meets Mariam, a mysterious refugee. She left her country in flight from terrorists. She tells him of her brave father who, after calling the terrorists murderers, was taken prisoner by them where he has remained for seven years. She shows Luke a photo of her father - on the back is written, 'love never dies' A stained glass artist, he created the magnificent Angel Window in that church. Mariam and Luke become close friends, but she is puzzled when he tells her that he has never slept. As they light candles for their fathers, the sun reveals the mysterious figure of a dying man in the centre of the Angel Window. Mariam tells Luke that one day he'll find his father and all will be well. But he's forgotten to tell her something: the bullies know where they are hiding. They've sent an email threatening death to them both. As the story reaches its dramatic climax, the secrets and fears all begin to fall into place. Soon, the words on the back of Mariam's photo will take on a new meaning. . . .
