A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2006: Fiction

Jane Urquhart’s stunning new novel weaves two parallel stories, set a century apart.                           

Sylvia Bradley was rescued from her parents’ house by marriage to a doctor whose care has both nourished and imprisoned her. When she meets Andrew Woodman, a historical geographer, her world changes through their devastating and ecstatic affair.

A year after Andrew’s death, Sylvia tells this story to Jerome McNaughton, a young artist whose discovery of Andrew’s body unlocks a secret in his own past. At the center of the novel is the tale of Andrew’s grandfather, Branwell, an innkeeper and a painter, whose liaison with an orphaned French-Canadian woman sets the stage for future events.

A novel about loss and the transitory nature of place, A Map of Glass is vivid with the evocative prose and haunting imagery for which Jane Urquhart’s writing is celebrated.

Review Quotes

“Urquhart writes with clear, sensuous poetry.”

Times Literary Supplement (London)

“Her language is vivid enough to take your breath away.”

Boston Globe

“She has claimed an urgent place as one of our most interesting and accomplished writers.”

Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Urquhart’s passion for the past and the land are at full poetic play in this intricate story of love, loss, and memory.”

Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

“There is an ethereal, dreamy quality in Hillary Huber’s reading that is well suited to Urquhart’s meditative novel about love, loss, and longing…The book sometimes has the feel of epic poetry, an impression furthered by Huber’s lyrical voicing.”
