Publisher Description

An aging Andrew Woodman stumbles through a snowstorm, slowly losing his strength, his language, and his memories of the once-familiar island landscape around him. When Jerome, a young artist on a remote island retreat, discovers Andrew’s body frozen in the ice later that winter, the rich narrative tapestry of 'A Map of Glass' begins. One year after Andrew’s body is found, Sylvia Bradley — a withdrawn, sheltered woman whose secret affair with Andrew opened her eyes to the world outside her small home town — decides to learn more about her lover’s mysterious disappearance. She flees to the overwhelming, unknown city of Toronto on a quest to find Jerome. Once she does, they work together to uncover both the secrets of their own pasts and the breathtaking story of Andrew’s ancestors. With her celebrated lyrical prose and haunting imagery, Urquhart’s 'A Map of Glass' is a skillful exploration of love, loss, and the transitory nature of place.
