About The Boy With The Blue Sky:
How far would you go to bring back a loved one from the dead?
Theo returned her stare. 'It's not just a program.'
'Then what the hell is it?' she said.
'It's a digital reconstruction of our son.'
On the anniversary of their young son’s death, teacher Eury can only find peace by descending into an electronically-induced world of dreamless sleep.
Her husband Theo, a music lecturer, is at the end of his tether and has tried everything he can think of to drag Eury out of the darkness. So, in a final act of desperation he acquires software that can digitally resurrect their child.
Will it bring Eury back to him or will the shock drive her deeper into a world of endless slumber?
The Boy with the Blue Sky is a story that shines a light on the steady creep of technology, into the most intimate parts of our lives.
