Publisher's Summary

Joseph Boyden's first novel, Three Day Road, was a Today Show Book Club selection. Through Black Spruce is the exceptional follow-up to his acclaimed debut. Cree bush pilot Will Bird lies comatose in a hospital, while his wayward niece Annie arrives to sit in silent vigil by his side. Slowly their stories reveal two people previously separated by great distances, beaten and broken, and searching for some sense of where they belong in the world.

Most Helpful

Nothing but praise

This is a powerful story of family ties, betrayal, enduring love, and unfathomable hope. Boyden portrays the vast northern wilderness, the conflict between 'progress' and 'the old ways', the attitudes of the young, and the battlefield of drink and drug abuse with a compassion that brings tears to one's eyes. He writes beautifully.
