DUBRAY STAFF RECOMMENDED READ: "From a distance, this is the story of one man: his lost loves, his artistic aspirations, a brother who shares their father’s violent streak, betrayal by a childhood friend, and a thirst for revenge. But Boyne has weaved a universal narrative, with each chapter of his character’s life told in a different time and place over 2000 years. A reflection on past lives or humanity’s common instincts over time? You decide. Either way, you will be swept along by this unique, epic tale". Recommended by Susan, Dubray Head office.
Some stories are universal. Some are unique. They play out across human history, and time is the river that flows through them.This story starts with a family. For now, it is a father and a mother with two sons. One with his father's violence in his blood. One with his mother's artistry. One leaves. One stays. They will be joined by others whose deeds will determine their fate. It is a beginning. Their stories will intertwine and evolve over the course of two thousand years. They will meet again and again at different times and in different places. From Palestine at the dawn of the first millennium and journeying across fifty countries to a life amongst the stars in the third, the world will change around them, but their destinies remain the same. It must play out as foretold.From the award-winning author of The Heart's invisible Furies comesA Traveller at the Gates of Wisdom, an epic tale of humanity.
