Beautifully written, extraordinarily powerful, a rare gem of a read!
Forever Torn is the true and amazing story of two brothers and three generations of one family - a family torn apart by deaths, poverty, deceit and a promise made by a small boy to his Grandfather over 80 years ago.
It is the story of one man who refused to acknowledge his past and his brother who remained bound to protect the secret, despite his own pain.
If you have enjoyed fictional epics such as Blood Brothers and Kane and Abel, you will love Forever Torn, which unlike the aforementioned is based on a true and tragic story.
A compelling family saga you will struggle to put down, it would be a cold heart that remained untouched by Greenfields Forever Torn.

Writing with an acerbic pen there’s an edgy sense of realism to his prose as he takes us through the years. He has a meticulous eye for period detail which he conveys through signs of the times and there’s no doubt he’s invested much in period research to capture that all important sense of poignancy. In this way, he reminds us throughout that we are reading a true story. There’s no gilding of the Lilly, giving us an ever-present undertone on which to reflect. One that ranges from heart-achingly sad to hopeful and uplifting as the years advance.
For readers who appreciate the unscripted aspects of life and the enduring legacy of family and faith , Forever Torm is a powerfully engaging read and
