'There exists in all of us a song waiting to be sung which is as heart-stopping and vertiginous as the peak of the cathedral. That is the meaning of this quiet city, where the spire soars into the blue, where rivers and stories weave into one another, where lives intertwine.' One quiet evening in Salisbury, the peace is shattered by a serious car crash. At that moment, five lives collide - a flower seller, a schoolboy, an army wife, a security guard, a widower - all facing their own personal disasters. As one of those lives hangs in the balance, the stories of all five unwind, drawn together by connection and coincidence into a web of love, grief, disenchantment and hope that perfectly represents the joys and tragedies of small town life.

"His characters' voices convey loss, heartbreak, love and loneliness in a chorus that is emotional, compelling and thought-provoking." - The Mail

“An incredible new voice in fiction”

This is a novel of five lives intertwined. Of individual voices drawn together by geography and circumstance. I’ll admit that first change of voice, with a side-step from poetry to profanity, caught me by surprise.... More

“Too complex for me”

This was not what I expected from the writeup.
