An unsettling and absorbing tale from the bestselling author of The Woman in Black. Celibate, irreproachable and distinguished, Thomas Cavendish is in his mid-fifties and the obvious man to become Master of his college.
But, walking by the river, Thomas sees a young girl standing on the bridge.
It is an apocalyptic vision, one that alters Thomas's life irrevocably and tragically, but with the beauty and joy of a love never previously imagined. 'As light as a feather but as powerful as flight' Observer
