As the behemoth rises, a worker falls to his death, earning only a moments pause from his crew before they entomb him in freshly poured concrete. The workmans fall is witnessed by Helen Massey, a woman who is no stranger to tragedy ever since her fiance was killed by a roadside bomb in a war-torn country overseas. But neither the construction nor the imminent death of her town cause as much turmoil as the return of her long-lost brother, Robbie, who carries with him the secret that tore their family apart and which - unbeknownst to Helen - binds their lives together in a profound and unexpected way. Progress, the highly anticipated follow-up to Michael V. Smiths acclaimed debut novel Cumberland, is a stirring story of lives lost and found.
