The Wingmaker

Author(s): Mette Jakobsen


A mesmerizing otherworldly tale about love, memory and redemption from a masterly Australian storytellerThe crumbling marble angel is Vega's most ambitious restoration project yet, but she thinks she can manage it, if she could just find somewhere to house the 500-kilo statue while she works. Her father, Vince, has the solution- the abandoned Seafarers' Hotel, which sits alone at the end of a winding coastal road, offers both the space and quiet Vega craves.The hotel also holds other surprises, however. The chandeliers are home to dive-bombing canaries, the ballroom occasionally hosts a troupe of tango-dancing farmers, and one of the bedrooms is occupied by an inept handyman who might be even more broken than Vega.As Vega restores the fragile angel to its former glory, can she also find a way to pick up the pieces of her life and begin anew?
