A cathedral of a novel: awe-inspiring, echoing, timeless, and holy.
King David sings his psalms. A world away, King Henry plots. And Thomas Wyatt sees them both, his beloved falcon Lukkes on his arm.
Henry believes he must have what he wants. He wants Ann, a divorce, a son. He looks up at his tapestry of David and sees a mighty predecessor who wilfully took what he wanted.
Working on a new translation of the psalms, courtier-poet Wyatt sees something else: a different David, one who repented loudly and long, in song as in life.
As David pursues Bathsheba, Henry courts Ann, and Wyatt interweaves the past and present.
Lux is a story of faith and fidelity, power and its abuses, love and its flights.
