Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty, forced marriages and murder plots for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders. But there is hope beyond the fence, as well, which Ivy discovers when she is befriended by a group of people who've managed to live off the land for years. Ivy slowly becomes accustomed to the rhythms and customs of this new life, all the while trying to forget those she left behind in Westfall. When Bishop Lattimer reappears in her life, Ivy struggles to assimilate his presence, torn between love and fear. She comes to understand that true love is unconditional and opening her heart again requires that she accept the risk of pain. Ivy and Bishop settle into a life beyond the fence, but when word comes that Ivy's father and sister have staged a coup and Westfall has descended into a state of chaos, Ivy makes the difficult decision to return home with Bishop by her side.
Ivy returns to Westfall stronger than when she was cast out, sure of her heart and loyalties and ready to take a final stand for what she believes is right.

Review quote

"Thought-provoking, poignant, and sexy! Readers will burn the midnight oil to finish The Book of Ivy and fall asleep with the name Bishop Lattimer on their lips." --Regina at Mel, Erin, and Regina Read-A-Lot on The Book of Ivy

"The Book of Ivy has every ingredient you look for in an epic novel: from the spine-tingling plot and exhilarating characters, to every entrancing word penned by Amy Engel." --Kris at Insightful Minds Reviews on The Book of Ivy

"I enjoyed this novel so much that I polished it off in two sittings. There is no insta-love! There is no love triangle! Best of all, the protagonist actually has common sense, and she uses it! The slow-to-develop relationship is believable, and both Ivy and Bishop are easy to relate to. Waiting anxiously for Book 2!" --Julie at Magna Maniac Café on The Book of Ivy

"With her debut, Amy Engel has pulled off one of the best dystopian romances that I have ever read. It was impossible to put down." --Kayla at Bibliophilia, Please on The Book of Ivy

About Amy Engel

Amy Engel was born in Kansas and after a childhood spent bouncing among countries (Iran, Taiwan) and states (Kansas; California; Missouri; Washington, D.C.), she settled in Kansas City, Missouri, where she lives with her husband and two children. Before devoting herself full-time to motherhood and writing, she worked as a criminal defense attorney, which is not quite as exciting as it looks on television. When she has a free moment, she can usually be found reading, running, or shoe shopping.
