Originally published as The Binding in the United Kingdom in 2019 by The Borough Press.
Emmett Farmer is summoned away from his family to begin an apprenticeship as a Bookbinder-- a vocation that arouses fear, superstition, and prejudice, but which neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse. Books are strictly forbidden, but Bookbinding is a sacred calling. Seredith informs her new apprentice that he is a binder born, and under her watchful eye Emmett learns to hand-craft the elegant leather-bound volumes. Within the pages of the books they create, secrets are concealed and the past is locked away. In a vault under his mentor's workshop rows upon rows of books are meticulously stored. But there are avaricious and amoral tradesman who use their talents for dark ends, and Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of the books has his name on it. Soon, everything he thought he understood about his life will be dramatically rewritten. -- adapted from jacket
