2 Cassettes, Abridged.
Read by Peter Capaldi.
The war is ending, perhaps ended . . .
For the castle and its occupants the troubles are just beginning. Armed gangs roam a lawless land where each farm and house supports a column of dark smoke. Taking to the roads with the other refugees, anonymous in their raggedness, seems safer than remaining in the ancient keep. But the lieutenant of an outlaw band has other ideas, and the castle becomes the focus for a dangerous game of desire, deceit and death.
Combining a gripping narrative with a soaring, voyaging imagination, 'A Song Of Stone' addresses timeless questions of truth, betrayal, duty and loyalty, weaving them round a complex plot into a seamless, spellbinding whole.
