Imagine you could erase your grief.
Imagine you could forget your pain.
Imagine you could hide a secret.
Forever.


Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a Bookbinder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice – but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse.


He will learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there’s something you want to forget, he can help. If there’s something you need to erase, he can assist. Your past will be stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible.


In a vault under his mentor’s workshop, row upon row of books – and memories – are meticulously stored and recorded.


Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it.


THE BINDING is an unforgettable, magical novel: a boundary-defying love story and a unique literary event.
