Reviews

Praise for At the Edge of the Orchard:

`Chevalier's prose is by turns muscular, raw and sumptuous... a delight' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

`Chevalier has carved out a middle-point between writing literary fiction and its page-turning, commercial counterpart and this book will serve both those audiences' INDEPENDENT

`A rollicking yarn of 19-century America' THE TIMES

`A densely packed tale of fruit, roots, family and hardship' FINANCIAL TIMES

`A wonderful book; rich, evocative, original. I loved it' Joanne Harris

`A stunning read' GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

`A kind of arboreal love song ... an absorbing depiction of the harshness of pioneer life and the impossibility of escaping familial ties' MAIL ON SUNDAY

`Dark, brutal, moving, powerful' Jane Harris

`Powerfully realised ... [A] fine novel' DAILY MAIL

`It's her best since Girl with a Pearl Earring, telling the story both of America and a pioneer family with acuity, freshness and zest. I was captivated by it' Amanda Craig

`Tracy Chevalier serves up a rollicking yarn of 19th-century America. What Deborah Moggach did for tulips, Chevalier may well do for apples' THE TIMES

`This novel of raw beauty touches themes Chevalier explored in her novel, The Last Runaway. It's a richly rewarding read' EXPRESS

`With Chevalier's excellent storytelling ability and gift for creating memorable characters, this novel paints a vivid picture of the hard and rough-hewn life of American pioneers on their Westward journey' STARRED LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW
