Publisher's Synopsis

"No one writes about love or the American wilderness like Bill Roorbach . . . Thrilling." -Lily King, author of Writers & Lovers and Five Tuesdays in Winter

A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice


When sixteen-year-old Cindra Zoeller is sent to a reform camp in Montana after being involved in an armed robbery, she is thrust into a world of mountains and cowboys and miscreants. At Camp Challenge, she becomes transfixed by Lucky, a camp employee of mysterious origin-an origin of constant speculation-and the chemistry between them is instant, and profound. The pair escape together into the wilderness to create an idyllic life far from the reach of the law, living off their resounding love, Lucky's vast knowledge of the wilderness, and a little help from some friends. But they can run from the outside world for only so long, and the consequences of their naïve fantasy of a future together-and circumstances shaped by skin colour-will keep them apart for decades. Will Cindra ever see her soulmate again? Or are the dark whispers true?

Page-turning, full of vivid characters, delicious suspense, and ultimately joy, Lucky Turtle is a big- hearted, deeply engrossing love story from one of our most entertaining and perceptive writers.
