Summary

Named as one of '50 Writers You Should Read Now' by The Guardian. From the award-winning author of The Rift, Nina Allan, The Silver Wind is a remarkable narrative exploring the nature of time itself.

Martin Newland is fascinated by the nature of time. Watches and clocks are for him metaphorical time machines, a means of coming to terms with a clouded past and voyaging forward into the future. But was his first timepiece a Smith, given to him on his fourteenth birthday, or the Longines he received as a present four years later? Was it the small brass travelling clock unearthed in the run-down house for which he is to act as estate agent? And who is the maker of these time machines?

Clues abound but contradict each other: was it an ex-seaside circus performer, or a 'miracle dwarf' engaged in a government project to subvert the course of time into parallel realities? As Martin pursues these mysteries, is he haunted by the spirit of his dead brother, or by the death of his beloved sister?

Award winning author Nina Allan constructs a remarkable narrative in which five separate segments of story interlock and interweave like the perfectly honed cogs of a watch mechanism
