The Redemption of Galen Pike

The Redemption of Galen Pike

  • $17.95


From remote Australian settlements to the snows of Siberia, from Colorado to Cumbria, restless teenagers, middle-aged civil servants, and Quaker spinsters traverse expanses of solitude to reveal the secrets of the human heart.

Encountering domestic abuse, marital strife, murder, and a myriad of other challenges, Carys Davies' characters are set on journeys that surprise at every turn. Written with raw and rigorous prose, charged throughout by a prickly wit, the stories in The Redemption of Galen Pike remind us how little we know of the lives of others.
