Un relato de deseos enterrados y traiciones indescriptibles.

Una historia de amor que desaf�a los l�mites.

Una novela m�gica e inolvidable.

Imagina que los libros no solo contienen historias.

Imagina que puedes ocultar entre sus p�ginas tus mayores miedos, tu dolor m�s profundo, tus secretos m�s oscuros. A todo el mundo. Incluso a ti mismo. Para siempre.

Emmett Farmer, despu�s de un largo d�a de trabajo en el campo, recibe una misteriosa carta que le cita a incorporarse como aprendiz de encuadernador. Es una profesi�n que despierta miedo y superstici�n en su entorno. Sin embargo, como humilde campesino sin recursos, no le queda m�s remedio que abandonar la granja familiar.

En la casa aislada donde vive su maestra, la anciana Seredith, Emmett aprender� a elaborar libros que, m�s all� de tener unos acabados muy cuidados, son tomos m�gicos que conservan los recuerdos de las personas y atesoran secretos del pasado.

Quien quiere olvidarse de alg�n episodio del pasado, puede acudir al lugar donde los encuadernadores encierran estas vivencias en vol�menes que guardan en una cripta bajo el taller: una suerte de biblioteca del olvido en la que todo permanece a la espera. Pero un d�a Emmett descubre su nombre en uno de esos libros...


Proclaimed as "truly spellbinding," a "great fable" that "functions as transporting romance" by the Guardian, the runaway #1 international bestseller

"A rich, gothic entertainment that explores what books have trapped inside them and reminds us of the power of storytelling. Spellbinding." -- TRACY CHEVALIER

Imagine you could erase grief.
Imagine you could remove pain.
Imagine you could hide the darkest, most horrifying secret.

Young Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a strange letter arrives summoning him away from his family. He is to begin an apprenticeship as a Bookbinder--a vocation that arouses fear, superstition, and prejudice amongst their small community, but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse.

For as long as he can recall, Emmett has been drawn to books, even though they are strictly forbidden. Bookbinding is a sacred calling, Seredith informs her new apprentice, and he is a binder born. Under the old woman's watchful eye, Emmett learns to hand-craft the elegant leather-bound volumes. Within each one they will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there's something you want to forget, a binder can help. If there's something you need to erase, they can assist. Within the pages of the books they create, secrets are concealed and the past is locked away. In a vault under his mentor's workshop rows upon rows of books are meticulously stored.

But while Seredith is an artisan, there are others of their kind, avaricious and amoral tradesman who use their talents for dark ends--and just as Emmett begins to settle into his new circumstances, he makes an astonishing discovery: one of the books has his name on it. Soon, everything he thought he understood about his life will be dramatically rewritten.
An unforgettable novel of enchantment, mystery, memory, and forbidden love, The Binding is a beautiful homage to the allure and life-changing power of books--and a reminder to us all that knowledge can be its own kind of magic.
