Description

The Continuance Of Christopher Bird A spellbinding novel to rival vintage classics with a modern premise and original prose. This is the extraordinary story of Christopher Bird, a boy whose rebirth from previous lives finds him in nineteenth century London at a time when hardship is prevalent. "Christopher Bird was born in the usual manner. He should know, because he'd already done it many times before. He had to admit that the awareness at this stage was nowhere near what it could be, but all life must start somewhere." For the young boy, life was bound to explode on the streets of London sooner or later. What he wasn't anticipating was meeting up with the spirited street scamp, Violet. Together they form a beautiful friendship amongst the poverty and hunger of the City. Throughout their escapades-he as a bootblacker, and she as a pickpocket-Christopher knows he has a very specific purpose to fulfil. He treads through his providence, pieces of the puzzle falling into place as he lives and breathes the workshop of the world. Colourful characters stir events in Christopher's new world, bringing to life the words that make all of their destinies collide in one dramatic finale of continuance - the continuance of Christopher Bird. The Continuance Of Christopher Bird is an ambitious tale by Shelly Pratt, promising a strong contender to some of the great literary masterpieces of our time. In an ingenious twist of riveting storytelling and vibrant vernacular, The Continuance Of Christopher Bird delivers a book whose characters leap off pages, forever burning their beautifully crafted world into the minds of readers. For booklovers who have treasured all the classics such as Oliver Twist and Playing Beatie Bow-to the modern takes on fiction such as The Book Thief, The Time Traveler's Wife and Navigating Early-The Continuance Of Christopher Bird will delight audiences of all ages.show more
