Ten years on from MAN AND BOY, it is crunch time for Harry Silver.

But Harry is pushing forty and his ex-wife Gina is back in town, anxious to claim their son. Soon it could be time to kiss the good life goodbye. When Harry’s 15-year-old son Pat moves out to live with his mother, the hard times have only just begun. With his son gone, his job at risk and his wife’s happiness unsettled by the reappearance of her own ex, their dreams seem to be falling apart. Into the chaos of Harry Silver’s life stroll two old soldiers who fought with Harry’s late father in World war two. Can these two old men really help Harry reclaim his son, his family and his life? Does the greatest generation have one final lesson to teach Harry Silver? And will he finally learn what it really means to be a man? Funny, moving and unforgettable, MEN FROM THE BOYS is the final part of the trilogy that began with MAN AND BOY and continued with MAN AND WIFE — a story of men and women, the bonds of family and friendship and the love that is passed down from one generation to the next.
