The Body in the Clouds PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Body in the Clouds free pdf The Body in the Clouds tells the story of one extraordinary moment - a man falling from the sky, and surviving - and of three men who see it, in different ways and different times, as they stand on the same piece of land. An astronomer in the late 1700s, a bridge worker in the 1930s, an expatriate banker returning home in the early 21st century - all three are transformed by one magical event. All are searching for the same thing: how to understand what it means to call a place home, and how be able to tell when you get there. A luminous novel about the power of story - the stories that define who and where we are. And the stories we tell - and have told, and will tell - for the people we love.
