I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.

Emlyn is asked by her ex Tyler to help him track down a mutual friend of theirs, Janessa. Janessa has been living in a camper in various remote parks in the US with a boyfriend and posting about it on social media to drum up interest in a business she and Tyler are setting up. The narrative also goes back in time to describe how Emlyn and Janessa met and how Emlyn's relationship with Tyler ended.

I found this well-written but slow at times. The author is clearly well-informed about wilderness hiking and outdoorsy things in general and I learnt a lot. There were references to religious belief, but these were done with a light touch and focussed on hope.… (mer)

I loved this book! It's the first I've read of hers, and will definitely check out her other books.
The beginning of the back cover synopsis, "No electricity, no family, no connection to the outside world" enticed me right away, and the book delivered.
Cooper, and his daughter, Finch, have managed okay living in an old cabin in the woods, owned by a friend of Cooper's from his days in the service, a friend who brings them supplies every year.
Until the year his friend doesn't show up, and Cooper needs to take matters into his own hands to ensure their survival.
I loved every character in this story, the multifaceted personalities such as their only neighbor, Scotland. As their situation worsens, and the threat of Cooper's whereabouts escalate, he is backed into a corner, and this page-turning story will keep you guessing right to the very end.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this interesting, well-told story!

Living in a remote cabin in Appalachia, Cooper and his daughter, Finch, stay off the grid. When their friend, Jake, who provides them with food and supplies doesn't arrive one year, they know they need to make some changes.
A neighbor, Scotland, starts coming around. Cooper is very wary of him, as Cooper is hiding from the past that caused Finch and Cooper to disappear into the woods. When a stranger appears in their woods, Cooper knows that they are in danger.
This is a beautifully written story of a father's love, and the love of those who are willing to help you. The selfless deed near the end of the story is so beautiful.
I recommend this book and can't wait to read the author's backlist.

Easy read about an ex soldier who kidnapes his daughter after his wife’s death, and decides to live in isolation with her in the woods. We learn why this happened and how he handles the situation when she starts to get older.
