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.

I listened to 40 minutes of this book and was traumatized by the awful language - could not see how the title had any bearing on the story and was unable to finish the book.
Why do people feel the need to use foul and course language ?
I feel i wasted my money on this one !!!
I could not bring myself to waste any more time on this book - I feel the whole experience was a total waste of time and money !!
Norris writes beautifully, lyrically and voices with equal comfort the thoughts of teenager, old farmer and troubled woman and lonely wife. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys exploring the interior lives and thoughts of a set characters whose lives intersect in a compelling narrative
