Adamson's compelling debut novel tells the wintry tale of 19-year-old Mary Boulton and her frantic odyssey across Idaho and Montana in 1903. The details of Boulton's sad past slowly emerge as she reluctantly ventures into the mountains, struggling to put distance between herself and her two brothers-in-law, who track her like prey in retaliation for her killing of their kin. As she moves further away from civilisation, her path from retribution to redemption slowly unfurls. The Outlander is the haunting tale of one woman’s journey deep into the wild.

Book of the Month
Steve Toltz's debut novel, A Fraction of the Whole, takes the form of Martin Dean's confession of his failures and hopes to his son, Jasper. It’s a story that takes them from the Australian bush to the cafes of Paris, from the Thai jungle, asylums, labyrinths and criminal lairs, and from the highs of first love to the lows of failed ambition.
