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.
