Reviews

Praise for Tracy Chevalier:

"Chevalier is a master at foregrounding the small, dramatic stories of overlooked people from the past." --Geraldine Brooks, author of The Secret Chord

"A master of voices." --The New York Times Book Review

"Chevalier's ringing prose is as radiantly efficient as well-tended silver." --Entertainment Weekly

"Chevalier's signature talent lies in bringing alive the ordinary day-to-dayness of the past." --Elle

Praise for At The Edge of the Orchard

"Sometimes, a book comes along that somehow ticks all the boxes. This is one of those books: The voices are rich and individual; the attention to detail impressive; the scent of apples, damp earth, and pines runs potently through the whole. A joy." --Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

"With impeccable research and flawless prose, Chevalier perfectly conjures the grandeur of the pristine Wild West Robert encounters, the bawdiness of the period, and the commanding needs of the everyday adventurers--male and female-- who were bold enough or foolish enough to be drawn to the unknown. She crafts for us an excellent experience."--USA Today

"Excellently researched . . . brings to life a seminal chapter in American history. . . . A compelling look at what was lost and gained in westward expansion." --People

"Chevalier's research is painstakingly detailed without weighing down the story . . . Chevalier has created a patchwork of stories . . . together they form a picture of lives wrested from an unforgiving land, but with a promise of renewal." --The Guardian
