Critical Praise

"Told with old-fashioned brio and dead-eye skill, The Fugitive Wife gives us everything we could ask for in a novel: romance, high adventure, diamond-cut prose, and a story that traverses the great American landscape."

——Brady Udall, author of The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint

"An enormously satisfying first novel about the dreamers and schemers who flocked to Alaska at the turn of the 20th century. . . . In the end, Brown's impressive debut is less about the search for gold than the search for self."

——Gregory Cowles, New York Times Book Review "Peter C. Brown's robust saga . . . is the richest kind of storytelling."
