What’s Bred in the Bone
The Cornish Trilogy, Book 2
The Cornish Trilogy: Book #2
Narrated by two angels acting as commentators on Francis’ life, this novel is a curious blend of fable, religion, and mythology.
Francis Cornish was always good at keeping secrets. From the well-hidden family secret of his childhood to his mysterious encounters with a small-town embalmer, an expert art restorer, a Bavarian countess, and various masters of espionage, the events in Francis’ life were not always what they seemed.
In this wonderfully ingenious portrait of an art expert and collector of international renown, Robertson Davies has created a spellbinding tale of artistic triumph and heroic deceit. It is a tale told in stylish, elegant prose and endowed with lavish portions of Davies’ wit and wisdom.
