10-year anniversary edition - features first chapter of Stef's new epic novel, Under a Pole Star.
Costa Award Winner and worldwide best seller.
A breathtaking tale of mystery, buried secrets and romance, set in 19th-century frontier Canada - for fans of The Snow Child and A Place Called Winter.
Canada, 1867. A young murder suspect flees across the snowy wilderness. Tracking him is what passes for the law in this frontier land: trappers, sheriffs, traders and the suspect's own mother, desperate to clear his name. As the party pushes further from civilisation, hidden purposes and old obsessions are revealed. One is seeking long-lost daughters, another a fortune in stolen furs; yet another is chasing rumours of a lost Native American culture.
But where survival depends on cooperation, their fragile truce cannot afford to be broken nor their overriding purpose - to find justice for a murdered man - forgotten.
The Tenderness of Wolves is a must-listen historical epic weaving adventure, suspense and humour into an exhilarating thriller, a panoramic romance and, ultimately, one of the best audiobooks of the last 10 years.
"Unquestionably atmospheric, evocative and rewarding." (Independent on Sunday)
