Cold Against the Glass is contemporary Australian fiction set in Sydney and tells the story of Florence Lane, an artist and forager who discovers a collection of forgotten human specimens languishing in a city museum.
In studying these curiosities, Florence unlocks the secrets they keep of dangerous industries and decadent lifestyles, of medicine gone wrong. But it’s the specimen of an unidentified baby that captivates her and she becomes obsessed with tracking down the infant’s parents. Who are they? Why did they donate their baby to science? Why have they never claimed her?
This unexpected tale of love and loss explores the lives we treasure, the stories we choose to tell and the grief we carry in our hearts.
