Summary

The turbulent saga of Ash, a troublesome, 12-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. But where's the rest of the aeroplane?
1941: Trinidadian fighter pilot Rudy finds himself reflecting on life, somewhere over the coast of France, limping back to Blighty in a wounded Spit.
2014: St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington. As Ash surveyed his own son Tom's broken body, he wondered how much he was willing to share, now Tom was old enough to ask awkward questions...
Spanning over 70 years, Cathedrals in the Sky is a tightly woven coming-of-age psychology of love, loss, parenthood, and identity, told from a series of five very different perspectives.

Fantastic story, beautifully written and narrated...

Spanning three generations and told from multiple perspectives, Andrew Rajan's 'Cathedrals in the Sky' is lyrical and beautiful.

The varied narrative perspectives lend themselves to an audiobook format and the author's experience as an actor offers a richness and easy appeal to the delivery.

Character's accents are convincing and the main protagonist's narrative voice is gentle, wry and often moving.

Descriptions are detailed, precise and beautifully apt - hearing them aloud makes them intensely vivid, almost filmic in their immediacy.

Highly recommended for anyone who relishes decent writing, multi-layered plots and fluid narration. A gem of a book.
