From the Publisher
A heart-pounding novel about the extremes to which people will go
for success, from the bestselling author of Little Bee.
In the tradition of his beloved previous novel, Little
Bee, Chris Cleave again gives us an elegant, funny, passionate
story about friendship, marriage, parenthood, tragedy, and
redemption. This time, the setting is the London Olympics.
Gold is the story of two women, Zoe and Kate, world-class
cyclists who have been friends and rivals since their first day of
elite training years ago. They have loved, fought, betrayed,
forgiven, lost, consoled, triumphed, and grown up together. Now, on
the eve of London 2012, their last Olympics, the two must compete
for the one remaining spot on their team. In doing so, the women
will be tested to their physical, mental and emotional limits. They
will confront each other and their own mortality, and be asked to
decide: What will you sacrifice for the people you love?
