Beschreibung

The turbulent saga of Ash, a troublesome, twelve-year-old, trans-racially adopted British-Asian boy, sent to live on a Kent farm by a mother too ill to cope, during the long, hot summer of 1976. There, he discovers a buried WWII Spitfire engine and determines to rebuild it with his Grandfather. Spanning over 70 years, Cathedrals In The Sky is a coming-of-age psychology of love, loss and parenthood, told from a series of five very different perspectives.

Klappentext

1941: Trinidadian fighter pilot Rudy finds himself a long way from home, somewhere over the coast of France, limping back to Blighty in a wounded Spit.

1976: Young Ash, shuffling around with a metal detector makes a big discovery in Baggett's Pond, spending a hot afternoon trying to dig it out, to impress Helen as much as anything. It's a Rolls Royce Merlin engine, but where's the rest of the aeroplane?

2014: St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington. 'Cathedrals In The Sky' was the name of a poem Ash vaguely remembered from his own misspent youth, paying little attention to teachers and more to the capabilities of Swan Vestas. How much was he willing to share with his boy, now he is old enough to ask awkward questions?

Spanning over 70 years, 'Cathedrals In The Sky' is a coming-of-age psychology of identity, love, loss and parenthood, told from a series of five very different perspectives.
