The Ghost of Matter

by Helen Lowe

Octavia Cade weaves together time and memory, physics and mystery, in this story inspired by Ernest Rutherford’s life and research.

1886. Two young boys disappear in the Sounds. Their mother grieves, all the music cut out of her heart; their father wanders the coast for a year, wanting and not wanting to find any part of them left behind. And their brother Ern, faced with a problem to which no solution can be found, returns to his laboratory – and to the smell of salt, soft voices in his ear, wet footprints welling seawater in the darkness.
