A thousand paper birds

Udall, Tor2017
Books, Manuscripts
Jonah sits on a bench in Kew Gardens, trying to reassemble the shattered pieces of his life following the sudden death of his wife, Audrey. Chloe, shaven-headed and abrasive, sits by the lake, finding solace in the origami she meticulously folds. But when she meets Jonah, her carefully constructed defences threaten to fall. Milly, a child quick to laugh, freely roams Kew. But where is her mother, and where does she go when the gardens are closed? Harry's purpose is to save Kew's plants from extinction. Quiet and enigmatic, he longs for something - or someone - who will root him firmly to the earth. Audrey links these lives together. As the mystery of her death unravels, the characters journey through the seasons to learn that stories, like paper, can be refolded and reformed.
