Publisher's Summary

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.

Sensitive and thought-provoking

Norris writes beautifully, lyrically and voices with equal comfort the thoughts of teenager, old farmer and troubled woman and lonely wife. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys exploring the interior lives and thoughts of a set characters whose lives intersect in a compelling narrative

It certainly touched me, maybe because of my own personal moment.

Very touching, inducing to soul searching. I feel like reading it again immediately, I probably will. I found myself reflected in so many similar situations and characters.
