The winner of the January book, a brand new copy of Georgette Heyer's An Infamous Army is Janan from Riverwoods, Illinois! Congratulations, Janan!
February's book is The Outlander, by Gil Adamson.
Gil Adamson’s extraordinary novel opens in heart-pounding mid-flight and propels the reader through a gripping road-trip with a twist — the steely outlaw in this story is a grief-struck nineteen-year-old woman who has just become a widow by her own hand. Tracked by bloodhounds and two vengeful brothers, The Widow flees across the western wilderness, encountering characters of all stripes — unsavoury, wheedling, altruistic, greedy, lascivious, self-sufficient, and occasionally trustworthy. Adamson’s brilliant literary style illuminates the gripping tale of one young woman’s deliberate journey into the wild.
Gil Adamson's acclaimed short fiction and poetry have been widely published in magazines and literary journals. Her poetry books, Primitive (1991) and Ashland (2003), and her collection of stories, Help Me, Jacques Cousteau (1995), received rave reviews. THE OUTLANDER, ten years in the writing, is her first novel. She lives in Toronto.
