Can one man change the world? To find out, come to the small Victorian town of Eden. Here you will meet Martin Brophy, who carries with him the scars of an horrific emotional trauma suffered in childhood. As a consequence of his experience, Martin has shielded himself from the media and has come to the conclusion that overexposure to the news, mostly bad news, may be doing more harm than good. Martin comes in to an unexpected inheritance which provides him with the financial means to test out his theory. Martin is joined by Arthur Fromm, a disgraced former accountant, down on his luck and sent to Eden as part of the Work for the Dole Scheme. The two men form a close bond and with Martin’s money and Arthur’s expertise, they set up a social experiment in Eden to test Martin’s hypothesis. The result of this experiment become known as The Eden Effect. Its ramifications reverberate around the world and pit Martin against the might of the global media, with devastating results. One man can change the world. Told with humour and a nothing-to-hide attitude, many readers will share memories of their own journey as a baby boomer and recognise the world of yesterday, presented so clearly from the perspective of one who was there. —Christine McGuigan, Kensington Review This entertaining debut novel is a quietly entertaining read with a few touches of the macabre to make it interesting. Small town life is wonderfully told and the friendship between the two main characters is built beautifully throughout the story. —John Morrow’s Pick of the Week
