The Wild Heavens (eBook)
de Sarah Louise Butler
Sobre o livro
It all starts with an impossibly large set of tracks, footprints for a creature that could not possibly exist. The wordssasquatch,bigfoot andyeti never occur in this novel, but that is what most people would call the hairy, nine-foot creature that would become a lifelong obsession for Aidan Fitzpatrick, and in turn, his granddaughter Sandy Langley.
The novel spans the course of single winter day, interspersed with memories from Sandys lifechildhood days spent with her distracted, scholarly grandfather in a remote cabin in British Columbias interior mountains; later recollections of new motherhood; and then the tragic disappearance that would irrevocably shape the rest of her life, a day when all signs of the mysterious creature would disappear for thirty years. When the enigmatic tracks finally reappear, Sandy sets out on the trail alone, determined to find out the truth about the mystery that has shaped her life.
The Wild Heavens is an impressive and evocative debut, containing beauty, tragedy and wonder in equal parts.
