Under the Bed: Stories & Thoughts from a Desert Island tells the true story of how one of Kerry s best known lawyers, Robert Pierse, was caught in a tropical storm off the coast of Belize. While the storm rages on, Robert and his family wonder will they ever get home.
Cut off from the outside world, Robert tells stories and reflects on life and society. He remembers the people and events that have shaped him. Under the Bed is a story of survival; how a family, trapped on the other side of the world, told tales and jokes in order to stay together and not abandon hope. It is also the story of a father passing on a message; a hopeful message about the importance of family, and finding meaning in our fast changing and exciting world.
