The Vaster Wilds by Lauren Groff

Sale price£20.00


One of Darby's favourite books of 2023

The story of a servant girl and her struggles in the wilderness when she escapes an English settlement, set in 17th century America. Perfect for anyone wanting something a bit strange and historical that makes you think. - Darby

A profound and explosive novel about a spirited girl alone in the wilderness, trying to survive. A servant girl escapes from a settlement. She carries nothing with her but her wits, a few possessions, and the spark of god that burns hot within her. What she finds is beyond the limits of her imagination and will bend her belief of everything that her own civilization has taught her. The Vaster Wilds is a work of raw and prophetic power that tells the story of America in miniature, through one girl at a hinge point in history, to ask how -and if - we can adapt quickly enough to save ourselves.
