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 through the kin of a prosperous pal. Bewildered via his unusual new domestic on Park street, disturbed through schoolmates who don't understand how to speak to him, and tormented specially by way of his eager for his mom, he clings to the single factor that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously beautiful 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 harmful 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.
