Imagine you could erase your grief.
Imagine you could forget your pain.
Imagine you could hide a secret forever.
Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice—but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse.
He will learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there’s something you want to forget, he can help. If there’s something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible.
In a vault under his mentor’s workshop, row upon row of books—and memories—are meticulously stored and recorded.
Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it.
‘Pure magic. The kind of immersive storytelling that makes you forget your own name. I wish I had written it.’—Erin Kelly, author of He Said, She Said and The Poison Tree
