Samenvatting

Now in paperback, this is a story of discovery, adventure and a husband and wife tested by the paths society expects them to tread. From the author of }The Snow Child{, it's set at the end of the 19th century

Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester receives the commission of a lifetime when he is charged to navigate Alaska's hitherto impassable Wolverine River, with only a small group of men. The Wolverine is the key to opening up Alaska and its rich natural resources to the outside world, but previous attempts have ended in tragedy.

Forrester leaves behind his young wife, Sophie, newly pregnant with the child he had never expected to have. Adventurous in spirit, Sophie does not relish the prospect of a year in a military barracks while her husband carves a path through the wilderness. What she does not anticipate is that their year apart will demand every ounce of courage and fortittude of her that it does of her husband.

Recensie(s)

A clever, ambitious novel The Sunday Times A stunning and intriguing novel combining the epic adventurous sweep of Alaska with minutely beautifully observed details - the reader finishes it wiser and richer -- Rosamund Lupton A dazzling depiction of love, endurance, courage and wonder, and a worthy successor to THE SNOW CHILD -- Ron Rash Absorbing... a superior page turner Daily Mail Absorbing... their love for each other is beautifully rendered The Times If I read another novel this year that I love as much as this I will be entirely surprised. This is a very special book indeed and Eowyn Ivey is an incredibly gifted writer, bringing to us all the wonder, beautiful strangeness and fragility of the Alaska she loves -- Kate Atherton Absorbing and highly imaginative... Ivey, clearly a writer of prodigious talent, effortlessly knits these elements together to create an utterly enchanting read. Part intrepid adventure, part deeply affecting romance, this first-class novel is, at its heart, a love letter to the 'vast and cold beauty' of the last frontier Daily Express Enchanting... a fascinating, adventurous tale Grazia A rich and involving story of endurance, love and the Alaskan wilderness that captured me from the off Woman & Home Charming, whimsical and sometimes heat-breaking Red Entrancing... In this splendid adventure novel, Ivey captures Alaska's beauty and brutality, not just preserving history, but keeping it alive Publisher's Weekly Ivey's prose glitters...if this one doesn't win her a major award, I'll eat my trapper's hat The Tablet Unique... absorbing Stylist (Book Wars Winner) Beautifully lyrical Sunday Express The precision of such descriptions of the natural world ground the novel in a gritty verisimilitude that then allows Ivey to build a fanciful, daring imaginative edifice: the meticulous realism of the foundation allows the fabulous elements of her fiction to soar Guardian
