Product description

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.
