'A clever, ambitious novel' The Sunday Times

'Persuasive and vivid... Breathtaking' Guardian

Winter 1885. Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester accepts the mission of a lifetime, to navigate Alaska's Wolverine River. It is a journey that promises to open up a land shrouded in mystery, but there's no telling what awaits Allen and his small band of men.

Allen leaves behind his young wife, Sophie, newly pregnant with the child he had never expected to have. Sophie would have loved nothing more than to carve a path through the wilderness alongside Allen - what she does not anticipate is that their year apart will demand every ounce of courage of her that it does of her husband.

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 *
