Tinder Press announces TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD by Eowyn Ivey
December 9, 2015
Here at Tinder Press we love the fact that when the weather turns colder so many readers’ thoughts turn to one of the classics on our list, Eowyn Ivey’s THE SNOW CHILD. So we could not be prouder that Eowyn has today announced via her blog that we will be publishing her new novel, TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD, in August 2016. Set once again in the Alaskan wildnerness Eowyn bought to unforgettable life in her extraordinary debut, TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD is a breathtaking story of discovery and adventure, and of a marriage tested by separation.
In the winter of 1885, Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester receives the commission of a lifetime, when he is charged to lead an expedition into the new acquired territory of Alaska, and to travel up the ferocious Wolverine River, mapping the interior and gathering information on the region’s native tribes. With a young and newly pregnant wife at home, Forrester is anxious to complete the journey with all possible speed and to return to her. But once he and his small band of men pass beyond the edge of the known world, there’s no telling what awaits them.
TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD is an epic tale of one of America’s last frontiers, revealed through an elaborate patchwork of letters, journal entries and artifacts, and shot through with a glimmer of magic which will delighted readers who loved THE SNOW CHILD.
THE SNOW CHILD was an international bestseller in hardback and paperback, and went on to win Eowyn Ivey the International Author of the Year at the 2012 Book Awards. It was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
