Abstract:

1940. Coventry burns but Patrick Parker, miracle baby, is born away from his home town, safe in London, saved by Fate, and clearly a Man of Destiny. Florence Parker, mother, glories in his progress and waits upon his pleasure. George Parker, father, would, if he could, do likewise, but he scarely gets a look in. Patrick, born out of rubble, will be a great builder. He will admire Brunel, he will construct great buildings; nothing will stand in his way. The world - and its women - will adore him. He will also be humbled by love.
