Shards of Glass is my first novel and the tireless result of my graduate program.
Set in the year 1894 in London, England, it’s a story of two boys who make a morbid discovery one night on the Thames. What they find makes them examine their lives; both boys must face their past before they can grapple with their impending future. It’s a story of love and of loss and how the decisions someone makes, however small, affects everyone around them forever.
Even though W.B. Richmond is busy with his mosaic work on the domes of St. Paul’s Cathedral, he takes the time to become their mentor and friend. At a time when London was in dire need of hope and colour, Richmond was able to piece together a masterpiece out of tiny shards of glass; can he piece together the lives of the people he loves as easily?
