At the Edge of the OrchardBook - 2016
The American frontier. 1838: James and Sadie Goodenough have settled where their wagon got stuck - in the muddy, stagnant swamps of northwest Ohio. They and their five children work relentlessly to tame their patch of land so they can stake their claim on the property. 1853: Their youngest child Robert is wandering through Gold Rush California. Restless and haunted by the broken family he left behind, you can run only so far, even in America, and when Robert's past makes an unexpected appearance he must decide whether to strike out again or stake his own claim to a home at last. Chevalier tells a fierce, beautifully crafted story, her most graceful and richly imagined work yet.
