The Stone Carvers

by Jane Urquhart

The best book I have read in ages. Slow to get started, the beguiling, beatifully written stories of a brother and sister, Tilman and Klara make compulsive reading.


He loved the bridge with a child's love, the way a boy will love a tree house..... But he loved it too in a way peculiar to his nature, because it gave him shelter without closing him in. There were no impenetrable walls, no doors that might contain locks. And always below him there was the river, solemnly moving and changing, going somewhere else.
