  • At the Edge of the Orchard – Tracy Chevalier

    R330.00

    Tracy Chevalier’s minutely-researched historical novels are a pleasure to read. The only other one I’ve read is Beautiful Creatures, which I  loved. As a history-lover I particularly enjoy an author whose account of historical fact in a fictional context can be trusted. The story starts with a pioneering family, James and Sadie Goodenough and their children, landing up in the swamps of Ohio in 1838. There they try to grow the requisite 50 trees to secure their land claim. But a swamp is not an ideal place for an apple orchard; an unsuitability extends to their marriage and dysfunctional family unit. The narrative then jumps to 1853 as their son Robert travels through California, and this raises questions around the circumstances of his departure. Robert meets the genuine John Chapman (AKA Johnny Appleseed) through his occupation of collecting seeds for wealthy English buyers. Richly described, full of fascinating botanic detail and evocatively written.
