To The Bright Edge Of The World by Eowyn Ivey



Set in Alaska an expedition is going to set out on previously uncharted waters and territory. An expedition that is fraught with danger. Previous expeditions have failed but this is now a challenge to open the Wolverine River and get access to Alaska's rich natural resources.

Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester thinks of this as an opportunity of a lifetime being given the lead for such an important expedition. His young pregnant wife Sophie does not know what the future will hold when they are parted for an year.

The story said through journal entries, letters, pictures,  notes add a lot of graphic interest and strength to the story both personal and historical.

I read The Snow Child and found it intriguing. This one sounds good too.
You and your country have been in my thoughts and prayers all week.
I hope you and your loved ones are safe.

I am really curious about this one. I haven't read the author's other book yet, but that one is on my TBR pile.
