9780141323404: The Bride's Farewell

With its brooding and atmospheric nineteenth century setting, Meg Rosoff's The Bride's Farewell is a romantic novel that continues to haunt and captivate the reader long after reading.

On the morning of her wedding, Pell Ridley creeps out of bed in the dark, kisses her sisters goodbye and flees - determined to escape a future that offers nothing but hard work and sorrow.

The road ahead is rich with longing, silence and secrets, and each encounter leads her closer to the untold story of her past.

And then she meets a hunter - infuriating, mysterious and cold. His fate appears to be strangely entwined with her own. Will he help her to find what she seeks? Or must she continue to wander the earth, searching for love and lost things . . .

Bestselling author Meg Rosoff has received great critical acclaim since the publication of her first novel How I Live Now (winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize). Her other novels, Just in Case (winner of the 2007 Carnegie Medal) and What I Was which was described by The Times as 'Samuel Beckett on ecstasy', are also available from Puffin.

Review:

"It's not often you come across a children's book as richly detailed and layered as this...Meg Rosoff is a wonderful, captivating writer - her evocation of place and time are pitch perfect. 5 *****" --Daily Telegraph

"Lose yourself in Meg Rosoff's 'The Bride's Farewell', a wildly inventive romantic adventure set in the New Forest, full of mythical tales, featuring a hunter who turns out to be a Mr Darcy type. Now that truly is escapism." --Red Magazine Red Magazine

"Another shift in emphasis for this always revelatory author as she illuminates the lives of the rural poor in the world of Hardy's Wessex... it is not necessary to love horses, but you probably will after reading it." -- The Bookseller The Bookseller

"A poetically charged romance, full of thorny emotional dilemmas... With more than a nod to Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Meg Rosoff has created a feisty 19th-century heroine whose troubles and travails are strikingly salient in the world of modern romance." --Marie Claire Marie Clare

"An engaging, impeccably-written novel, it tells a feminist story of a feisty independence, set against a rural, patriarchal background."
--Independent on Sunday Independent on Sunday
