A year after Andrew's death, Sylvia tells this story to Jerome McNaughton, a young artist whose discovery of Andrew's body unlocks a secret in his own past. At the center of the novel is the tale of Andrew's grandfather, Branwell, an innkeeper and a painter, whose liaison with an orphaned French-Canadian woman sets the stage for future events.
A novel about loss and the transitory nature of place, A Map of Glass is vivid with the evocative prose and haunting imagery for which Jane Urquhart's writing is celebrated.
"Her language is vivid enough to take your breath away." (Boston Globe)
"Urquhart's passion for the past and the land are at full poetic play in this intricate story of love, loss, and memory." (Publishers Weekly)

The narration made this difficult
This is the same narrator that read The Three Weissmanns of Westport, which I thought was fine, but in this book, I keep retelling the book in my mind with different emphasis. The male voices are especially irritating and boring. I wonder how Jane Urquhart liked this interpretation.
