Really excellent debut novel The book has a strong sense of place set in and around Salisbury the cathedral Old Sarum Stonehenge and the wooded flood plain where five rivers meet The book starts with a pastoral image filled description of this landscape and the song of the countryside and rivers and then follows five separate characters whose lives intersect around a single incident a car crash but we and they discover have a series of earlier connections Each character has a section written in the first personRita a foul mouthed drug dealer and flower seller whose addictions and lifestyle have alienated her from her ex husband and hurtingly her son and grandsonSam a painfully self conscious timid and untrendy 15 16 year old who starts his first relationship with a girl who sings in the same choir just as his father is dying of cancerGeorge whose happy albeit tinged with strong melancholy due to the lack of any children marriage ends when his wife diesThe wife of a soldier in Afghanistan her life consumed by anxiety and a sense of worthlessness and the absence of her husband and also her son at Boarding school and growing increasingly distant her thoughts are set out in a diaryA security guard Liam who grew up locally but returned to the scene of his upbringing in an attempt to find a way in life after his girlfriend split with him and his divorced parents both remarriedLiam s section returns explicitly to the themes of the prologue and the intersection of rivers and Liam himself is far aware of the links of the five characters and muses on the similarity of their intersection lives to the intersection of the riversThere are some flaws in the book the character of Sam is too precociously aware he writes at times looking back but is writing when he is 16 on how he felt when he is 15 the diary method of recording the army wife s thoughts is clumsy the intersections of lives while the whole theme of the book are reminiscent of early Kate Atkinson and at times are too freuent as well as too first hand at times the reader yearns for a weaker link and less coincidences However overall a really strong read the author remarkably captures and conveys the lives and characters of five normal people and the longing regret and melancholy as well as the gentle happiness and grief at the heart of their lives each section leaves the reader both moved and feeling slightly bereft when it finishes

This book has a nice concept at its core but unfortunately the self consciously literary tone and excessive amounts of exposition as opposed to dialogue or action killed it for me I had misgivings from the beginning The prologue is very florid containing all kinds of confusing metaphors There were sentences in there which I had to read two or three times to try and work out what they meant sometimes just giving it up as a bad job There was also some weird grandiosity in the mix eg the unknown narrator claiming that the spire of Salisbury Cathedral is the purest picture of the human heart she had ever seen Overall I would describe the book as uneven It s split into five parts each written from the perspective of different people in Salisbury and some of these chapters are far engaging than others The ones I found most readable were Rita and the soldier s wife these were also the chapters in which the language was less flowery and the characters and plot meaty In general it felt like the author wanted to write with beautiful language but actually didn t have a great deal to say There was very little action throughout When action did occur view spoiler ie when the actual car crash happened hide spoiler
