Set in the Alaskan landscape that she brought to stunningly vivid life in THE SNOW CHILD (a Sunday Times bestseller 2012, Richard and Judy pick and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize), Eowyn Ivey's TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD is a breathtaking story of discovery set at the end of the nineteenth century, sure to appeal to fans of A PLACE CALLED WINTER.

*NOMINATED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD 2017*

'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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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
