Two weeks, 1,500 miles, three opportunities for her husband to save his own life.
It isn’t about his survival – it’s about hers.
Shattered by the discovery of her husband’s affair, Liv knows they need to leave the chaos of New York to try to save their marriage. Maybe the roadtrip that they’d always planned, exploring America’s national parks, just the two of them, would help heal the wounds.
But what Liv hasn’t told her husband is that she has set him three challenges. Three opportunities to prove he’s really sorry and worthy of her forgiveness.
If he fails? Well, it’s dangerous out there. There are so many ways to die in the wilderness. And if it’s easy to die, then it’s easy to kill too.
If their marriage can’t survive, he can’t either.
Really thoroughly enjoyed Wilderness, a brilliantly paced character driven drama/ psychological thriller hybrid with a fascinating central protagonist who gets just a little grumpy when betrayed…
An affair uncovered and a “healing” road trip to the wildest places soon becomes a twisty, addictive tale with Liv scrambling to deal with unexpected spanners in the works and save her marriage. Assuming she wants to. Girl changes with the weather so the whole novel is beautifully delightful.
Insightful human drama mixed with plenty of edge of the seat near misses and a coolly immersive central premise, Wilderness is a great read.
