'If we don't leave happy, peaceful children behind us when we go then what on earth do we leave?'
With his love of birdwatching, cricket and carefully tended sunflowers, retired company man William ought to be able to look back on his life, his work and his family from a place of contentment. But can he? Meanwhile his wife Jane has gathered those closest to her for one particular week-end and as she travels through her past she asks: have I done the right things with my life? The Company Man by Torben Betts is a moving and poignant family portrait.
