About the book

The sweeping and compelling new novel from the bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring.


In 1830s Ohio, the Goodenough family barely scratch out a living in the inhospitable Black Swamp. Robert and his sister Martha must watch as their parents' marriage is torn apart by disputes over whether to grow sweet apples to eat or sour apples for cider and applejack. One particularly vicious fight sends Robert out alone across America, far from his sister, into a life dominated not by apple trees but by the mighty redwoods and sequoias of California.

Praise for At the Edge of the Orchard

"A wonderful book; rich, evocative, original. I loved it" – Joanne Harris

"Chevalier’s prose is by turns muscular, raw and sumptuous… a delight" – Independent on Sunday

"Tracy Chevalier serves up a rollicking yarn of 19th-century America. What Deborah Moggach did for tulips, Chevalier may well do for apples" – The Times
