The Marble Collector will fill fans with joy and shines light on a story we can all understand.
This is a novel about the love between father and daughter, and the disconnection that grows between two such people as they too grow and change with the passing of time.
We join main character Sabrina Boggs when she stumbles upon a mysterious collection of her father’s possessions and discovers the truth where she never knew there was a lie.
The familiar man she thought she knew everything about is suddenly a stranger to her, and she only has one free day to find out everything she can.
For this one day Sabrina is investigator in her own life, and we follow her as she unearths stories, memories and people she never knew about.
It is through discovering things about her father’s life that Sabrina ultimately answers questions of her own and discovers what she really needs from her life.
This novel is lovingly written, filled with adventure and discovery, Ahern also brings us into two lives, providing us with chapters from Sabrina’s father’s life as he remembers them in his old age, which then tie in flawlessly with the rest of the book.
This is a true gift of a book, a joy to read and gloriously well thought out.
