The Vaster Wilds (Hardback)Lauren Groff (author)
From the author of the captivating former Waterstones Fiction Book of the Month Matrix comes a tour de force of historical storytelling, as a fleeing servant girl finds herself adrift in a world she can scarcely comprehend.
A profound and explosive novel about a spirited girl alone in the wilderness, trying to survive.
A servant girl escapes from a settlement. She carries nothing with her but her wits, a few possessions, and the spark of god that burns hot within her. What she finds is beyond the limits of her imagination and will bend her belief of everything that her own civilization has taught her.
The Vaster Wilds is a work of raw and prophetic power that tells the story of America in miniature, through one girl at a hinge point in history, to ask how -and if - we can adapt quickly enough to save ourselves.
