Whatever Happened to Billy Shears?

by Steve Goddard (Author)

One handstand.



That’s all it took.



And Lucy Pitcher spun William Shearwater’s world upside down.



Fifty years on, ‘Shears’ is a squeaky-clean Anglican chaplain, nursing memories of a lost and secret love. He has never met English teacher Sophie Daggert, recently bereaved and on a quest to trace her natural parents. But through a mesmerizing series of twists and turns, Sophie and Shears are brought together in a shocking journey of self-discovery – with 1967’s Summer of Love at the heart of it all.



‘Witty, tragic and emotional. If there’s a better-observed comic novel about the 1960s, I’ll eat my kaftan.’

Cindy Kent MBE, (ex-The Settlers)



‘Goddard’s knowledge of popular culture is extraordinary, and the way he weaves it into a believable range of characters makes this book utterly compelling. A splendid read is guaranteed for all.’

Don Maclean, former presenter of BBC TV’s Crackerjack!
