Bridge of Clay
‘If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show... [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life’ Guardian
A lost typewriter -- A dead dog -- The bones of the snake that killed it
Matthew Dunbar, eldest of five brothers, is on a journey to find them all. Only then can he tell the astonishing story of his family, rocked by tragedy and a long-buried secret.
He will learn of a mother who crosses continents for a new home; of a father searching for love in the keys of an old piano; and, finally, of a brother named Clay, who will make the most challenging journey of them all, and change their lives for ever.
An epic and spellbinding quest for redemption and greatness, Bridge of Clay will take you to many places, and will ask two eternal questions: where are you going, and who will you be when you get there …?
