Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an twist of fate that kills his mom. deserted via his father, Theo is taken in by way of the kinfolk of a prosperous buddy. Bewildered by means of his unusual new domestic on Park road, disturbed through schoolmates who have no idea easy methods to check with him, and tormented chiefly by way of his eager for his mom, he clings to the only factor that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously appealing portray that finally attracts Theo into the underworld of art.
As an grownup, Theo strikes silkily among the drawing rooms of the wealthy and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques shop the place he works. he's alienated and in love--and on the middle of a narrowing, ever extra risky circle.
The Goldfinch is a enchanting, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old school tale of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of destiny.
