As gradual as a cloud passing or a blossom opening, this is the story of a woman very slowly dying, accompanied by her husband and an astonishing number of offspring, from infants to young adults. David Huddle's nineteenth book explores how children grieve, and shows how the wit and courage of even the littlest brothers and sisters can be a source of resilience. Familial conversation composes an intimate requiem, transforming loss into comprehension. Only one of our finest writers could manage this delicate material. THE FAULKES CHRONICLE is subtle, and autumnal novel - made of momentary details yet with an encompassing grandeur.
