It's been a while since Alex had stepped into his home. He had missed the smell of freshly baked cookies and the Japanese blossom musk of his mother's hair. But most of all... He missed the treehouse he had built with his Dad and brother as autumnal leaves had fallen to the floor that day. Alex Autumn has returned to his hometown after life turning events, which force him to face his worst fear- learning to forget. Everything he does since his arrival is closely watched and secretly judged by his peers, his neighbours...even his family. Trying to escape from life's ordeals, the somewhat frosty character retreats to his only sanctuary. But what he finds there will change the course of his life forever.
