The Vaster Wilds

by Lauren Groff

OUR FAVORITE BOOK THIS YEAR! It’s the middle of the night, nearing the end of winter, and a young girl slips through the wall surrounding the fort at Jamestown, running, leaving behind something terrible. Gripping from the first page, we follow her as she flees into the unknown, seeking safety. The Vaster Wilds is a taut, breathtaking adventure as we follow her into the wilderness, gradually learning about what has come before. It is a remarkable story of one young woman’s awakening to a deeper connection to nature, her own faith, and her place in the world –  the vaster wild that lies within. Absolutely stunning! – Diana
