Blurb; The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance.
At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.
The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?
My Review; I had to read this one as his previous book (The Book Thief) is my all time favourite book… Ever. Now… Bridge of Clay is very different to The Book Thief but I enjoyed it and loved it just as much nevertheless.
Bridge of Clay is beautifully written. At 600 pages it is a hand killer to hold and that is the only downside to this book (I promise). All the characters within this story are very lovable and unique in their own way. Especially the dunbar boys. Clay has to be my favourite (obviously).
This is a beautiful story and though they don’t show it much the five brothers love each other really in their own unique ways and stick together as a family through the bad and good times. A story about forgiveness, love and loss. A story that will stick in your heart after you’ve long finished it.
A well deserved five stars, highly recommend! Bridge of Clay will also be going into my top 20 of 2018! Brilliant. I love Markus’s writing style and stories, big fan.
