The Prentice Boy by Ray Rumsby | ebook
‘I was genuinely sorry to finish this book. It had me completely engaged… and I loved the clever surprise in the middle of it.’
Louis de Bernieres, author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Set in 1820 London, landscape artist William Daniell hires Jesse Cloud, a homeless teenager, to be his apprentice. But all is not as it seems. Both William and his prentice must make their own inner journeys to expose others’ betrayals and explore their own possibilities. Faced with bankruptcy, starvation looms. Friendships fragment. The artist must learn how to see and his prentice must learn how to survive – while the truth shatters all.
