The starlings dance in mesmerising patterns. In and out they fold. Up and down. Below them a Victorian pier has stood the test of time, carrying each generation over a cold and relentless sea.
This heartfelt historical drama follows the lives of five strangers over the course of 150 years. Each of them stop to look at the murmuration of starlings in the very same spot on the pier of a Victorian seaside town, and from that moment on their distinct stories are united by a common thread: a terrible mistake that keeps on repeating with every generation. Only one mysterious man has the power to stop history repeating itself again by solving a mystery as old as the pier itself.
A sweeping narrative filled with intrigue and magical realism, Murmuration explores the shifting patterns of fate. Is there order in the universe? And if not, how can our souls ever truly move on?
A perfect summer read for fans of Cloud Atlas.
