Summary

On a moonlit night in 1903, a mysterious young woman flees alone across the Canadian wilderness. Mary Bouton is 19 years old, half mad and widowed - by her own hand. Tearing through the forest, she is desperate, her nerves burning, and she is certain of only one thing - that two red-headed brothers, rifles across their backs, lurch close behind her. She has murdered their brother and their cold lust for vengeance is unswerving.

Critic reviews

"Striking, thoughtful, full of unexpected twists, The Outlander is that rare delight: a novel that is beautifully written yet as gripping as any airport page-turner." ( Guardian)
"... With the breathless pace of an old-fashioned adventure story, and a supporting cast of mavericks, eccentrics and outcasts, this rich novel is packed full of drama." ( Daily Mail)
"A superb adventure story." ( Kate Saunders, The Times)

Having read this in paperback heading it was a joy. Though this is one time is have liked an American narrator. Still great though.

Easy listening

But not for me. The historical details were interesting but difficult to care much about the main character
