McAuliffe Book Group: To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey
In the winter of 1885, decorated war hero Colonel Allen Forrester leads an exploratory expedition up the Wolverine River in the vast, untamed Alaska Territory. Forrester records his extraordinary experiences in a journal that he hopes to share with his newly pregnant wife—if he survives. Vancouver’s social restrictions test the Colonel’s wife, Sophie. The recent discovery of photography keeps her busy, waiting for her husband to return.
