Description
Shrosphire, England, 1773. Important men are planning the world's first iron bridge, to be built across the Severn River at Coalbrookdale. John Wilkinson, armsmaker, wants the bridge; let it serve as a symbol and advertisement for iron. Abraham Darby III, owner of the largest ironworks in England and a Quaker, wants the bridge; let it further his family name. Thomas Farnolls Pritchard, architect, wants the bridge; let it be the capstone of his career.

Maggie Foster, too, wants the bridge built -- but built wrong this time, so it will topple and thus divert history from the path that has made a ruin of her world. Maggie is an American, and she was sent by a desperate commune called Ecosophia in the year 2043.

In his first novel, David Morse has created a completely original story. With a sense of history and humor, he has brought past, present, and future to tell the matter of machinery and the march of time. An unprecedented debut.
