Description

“One in ten trees comes up sweet…” In the inhospitable Black Swamp of Ohio, the Goodenough family are barely scratching out a living. Life there is harsh, tempered only by the apples they grow for eating and for the cider that dulls their pain. Hot-headed Sadie and buttoned-up James are a poor match, and Robert and his sister Martha can only watch helplessly as their parents tear each other apart. One particularly vicious fight sends Robert out alone across America, far from his sister, to seek his fortune among the mighty redwoods and sequoias of Gold Rush California. But even across a continent, he can feel the pull of family loyalties… “A wonderful book; rich, evocative, original. I loved it.” JOANNE HARRIS “Raw and sumptuous… a delight.” INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY “A rollicking yarn of 19-century America.” THE TIMES “A densely packed tale of fruit, roots, family and hardship.” FINANCIAL TIMES

"The rich and powerful new novel from the bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring. “A brave, warm-hearted, moving book; the characters are well-drawn and credible; the local colour meticulously detailed.” JOANNE HARRIS on The Last Runaway “An accomplished historical novelist, and she successfully evokes the texture of life in the antebellum Midwest.” INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on The Last Runaway"
