There exists in all of us a song waiting to be sung which is as heart-stopping and vertiginous as the peak of the cathedral. That is the meaning of this quiet city, where the spire soars into the blue, where rivers and stories weave into one another, where lives intertwine.
One quiet evening in Salisbury, the peace is shattered by a serious car crash. At that moment, five lives collide - a flower seller, a schoolboy, an army wife, a security guard, a widower - all facing their own personal disasters. As one of those lives hangs in the balance, the stories of all five unwind, drawn together by connection and coincidence into a web of love, grief, disenchantment and hope that perfectly represents the joys and tragedies of small-town life.

Sensitive and thought-provoking
- felicity philpott
Interesting literary experiment.
Most of the characters were very interesting and fascinating to listen to - especially Rita and George. Alison was a desperate case.
The way the stories build, cross refer and relate to each other.
Solid. Sensitive. Engaging.
