A Map of Glass by Jane Urquhart

Award-winning, bestselling author Jane Urquharts eagerly anticipated new novel is a magnificent accomplishment and her strongest to date. A Map of Glass weaves two parallel stories, one set in contemporary Toronto and Prince Edward County, the other in the nineteenth century on the northern shores of Lake Ontario. A novel about loss and the transitory nature of place, A Map of Glass contains all the elements for which Jane Urquharts novels are celebrated. Sylvia Bradley was rescued from her parents? house by a doctor attracted to and challenged by her withdrawn ways. Their subsequent marriage has nourished her, but ultimately her husbands care has formed a kind of prison. When she meets Andrew, a historical geographer, her world changes. A year after Andrews death, Sylvia makes a connection with Jerome, a young conceptual artist/photographer who, while executing one of his outdoor projects, discovers Andrews body. After Sylvia escapes to the city, she shares with Jerome the story of Andrews forebears, a story that goes back to the nineteenth century amidst the flourishing timber and shipbuilding industries of Lake Ontario. This story is the breathtaking centre of A Map of Glass, an intricate novel enriched by moments of vivid history come to life and haunting imagery. It stands as her richest, most accomplished novel to date. ?She has claimed an urgent place as one of our most interesting and accomplished writers. . . .? ?Globe and Mail ?[Her] language is vivid enough to take your breath away.? ?
