9780061774034: Under This Unbroken Sky

Set in 1938 on the Canadian Prairies, Under This Unbroken Sky, tells the story of a farming family from the Ukraine who, having survived war and Stalin's labour camps, set out to make a living from an unrelenting land in a new country. the harsh vicissitudes of farming life and tensions within the family combine to generate a conflict that ends in tragedy.

This is the harrowing and magnificent tale of an immigrant family whose desperate hands work the earth and preserve its gifts, while equally desperate minds plot much darker deeds. Nearly all is lost when a brother is pitted against a sister, a mother against her newborn, with dramatic and breath-taking consequences.

Review:

utterly gripping.. Beautifully pitched and unsentimental in execution. Brilliant. (Eithne Farry MARIE CLAIRE)

A beautiful story about two families who have nothing, yet manage to strip each other of everything ( EASY LIVING)

Beautifully drawn characters, flawless descriptions of an unrelenting landscape and the intricate plot add to this harrowing, breathtaking novel... Not to be missed ( SHE)

This stunning first novel is powerful, tragic and utterly gripping ( THE TIMES)

Shandi Mitchell's impressive debut may not sound like your typical beach read but this tautly controlled epic should keep those in search of some holiday literary escapism hooked until the last page all the same (Claire Allfree METRO)

such is Mitchell's grasp of plot and character and pace that she can keep it that simple and still manage to hold the reader ( BOOKBAG.COM)

impressive control of the subject and a stunning depiction of the natural world (Catherine Taylor THE GUARDIAN)

Book Description:

An extraordinary family and an unrelenting landscape combine to create an epic story of survival and redemption.
