Book: The Sound of Gravity: Joe Simpson
As her hand slips from his grip, Patrick's life is shattered, forever changed.
The Sound of Gravity is a harrowing, dramatic and powerful tale of love, loss and redemption as that haunting split-second memory changes the course of a lifetime.
Trapped high on a stormbound mountain face in the icy depths of winter, the stricken young man is forced to fight for his life.
Half a lifetime later, haunted by grief and guilt, Patrick is freed from his self-imposed vigil when at last the mountain releases his heart-rending secret.
