Raised in an orphanage in Dickens, Daniel doesn't know who his parents were, where he comes from, or even his last name. Like all orphans, on his 16th birthday, he's sold to the highest bidder.
Not knowing where he's going, who's bought him, or what they even want with him, Daniel embarks on an adventure he never thought he'd take. He finds love, a family, and a secure future - yet in a split second, makes a decision he ends up regretting the rest of his life.

Here's what people are saying:
"I very much enjoyed the look at the society from the ‘downstairs’ side rather than the Family ‘upstairs’ view." - Julian White
"Really like that Daniel is confused about the order of Bridges and the way you introduce new readers to the world through his eyes, as he learns about The FAMILIES so does the reader." - Tess L.
Enjoy an early sample from Brothers:
“Congratulations. They want you.”
“Oh!” Daniel felt so ... surprised ... that he didn’t know what else to say.
You went to the viewing the month you turned sixteen. Everyone did. An old, brown-skinned man with round spectacles had come to Daniel’s viewing a few months back and talked to him for some time. That had been it.
From what Daniel was told, some were bought at their viewing; a few left that same day. But he’d also been told that it could take a while to find out whether your buyer wanted you, or if they’d changed their mind.
He figured the man had changed his mind.
Daniel peered at Miz Lisbet sitting behind her desk. He was one of the lucky ones. Yet it meant leaving. “What happens now?”
Miz Lisbet smiled like she thought he’d lost half the cards in his hand. “You’ll need new clothes for the training in Nitivali. It’s a rush order, so you’ll leave tonight.”
Daniel gaped at her. Tonight? “Yes, mum,” was all he could muster. He felt stunned, unable to move.
She glanced up at him. “You’re dismissed.”
Her voice startled him. “Oh! Yes, mum, sorry, mum.” He bowed and hurried out, carefully closing the door behind him.
He was supposed to go directly to the big room where the boys lived, but he turned beside her door, hands to his face, and leaned his forehead against the wall.
It’s what I always wanted. But it’s so soon.
Daniel didn’t remember anything before the Home. From the women who ran the place and the men who came to fix things or administer beatings, Daniel learned to be sociable, to be observant, to glean any skill or insight he could.
But the other boys were his real family. They were his brothers.
Daniel had realized long before this that even though he’d never seen it, there was more to this world than inside the Home. Some who never got sold never left: they served here until they died.
He wanted more.
