Emmett Farmer has been summoned to his apprenticeship as a bookbinder. Forced to leave the farm where he was raised, he will learn to craft books, a profession that strikes fear into his parents and prejudice in others. He will bind secrets, the shadows that haunt people, he will learn to take their memories and place them in a book to be forgotten. Then he discovers a book with his own name on the spine. This is Collins’ first adult novel after much success writing books for a younger readership. It’s beautifully written and breaks boundaries with it’s compelling love story.
