Bridge Of Clay

£8.99

The Dunbar brothers are living – fighting, loving, grieving – in the perfect chaos of a house without grown-ups. Today, the father who walked out on them long ago has just walked right back in. He has an unexpected request: Who will build a bridge with him? Seizing the chance to come to terms with a traumatic secret, Clay is the boy to accept. Such superhuman feat, he believes, will be the healing of him. But why is this boy so broken? And what will it take to put his family back together again?

Our mother was dead. Our father had fled

Five Dunbar brothers are living – fighting, loving, grieving – in the perfect chaos of a house without grown-ups.

This is a family rocked by tragedy and long buried secrets. To understand his family’s story, Matthew Dunbar must travel to find three things. A lost typewriter — A dead dog — The bones of the snake that killed it.

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.
