Novel's nod to legendary tale
IN celebration of the 160th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the ss Great Britain from England to Australia, on August 21, 1852, Bristol-born Robert Wallace has written a novel called Light at the End of the Tunnel.
Based upon real people and places from the Bristol area, the novel derives its title from the story that Box tunnel's alignment allows the sun to shine through it on April 9 – Brunel's birthday.
The story's penultimate chapter is set at Box, when the hero of the tale, Harry Brooke, and his friend Captain Bishop, set out to defeat Brunel's arch nemesis, Thomas Appleby.
Robert is now looking for a BT reader who would welcome the challenge of designing a book cover for his story. The illustration should depict two swashbuckling Victorian gentlemen galloping out of the tunnel on horseback, with the sunrise behind them.
