Brothers Ben and Tom Wilde are very close in age and always look out for one another. However, the arrival of Simon, a younger brother who has suffered complications at birth, brings about enormous change in two boys’ lives.
With much of their parents’ time and attention now understandably focused on Simon, the brothers must learn to make the best of their situation.
After an initial period of uncertainty, they befriend next-door neighbour and decorated World War Two veteran Captain Cokran. In turn, he challenges their way of thinking, and helps them come to terms with and accept their younger brother for who he is.
Culminating with a thrilling climax, The Coconut Harvest is a tale of childhood, parenthood, adventure, and growing up – enjoyable for children and adults alike.
