About the book:

Clever, urgent and uncompromisingly individual.?The Observer

Convinced that he is dying, Cathal Kerr retreats into his lonely cottage, preoccupied with the workings of his own mind and spirit. Meanwhile, in the wood above Cathal's desolate home, in a time overlapping the present, a sixth-century woodsman, the Tracker, watches the movement of beast and man.

The road running nearby follows the old Roman highway, transformed by legend into The Bright Road. What happens when Cathal's world comes into contact with an age long gone? Who will survive when men and armies clash on the Bright Road? Could this be the end of one man's universe ... or the beginning of another's? On The Bright Road follows the dark transmigration of a soul into the bleak, shifting landscapes of Celtic Wales.
