A novel by

 
 
From the New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award finalist and critically acclaimed author of The Longshot, a gripping, psychologically intense novel about the destruction of a family, a farm, and a country.

Set on a struggling farm in a fiercely beautiful colonial country teetering on the brink of civil war, this second novel by one of literature's rising young stars weaves a brilliant tale of family drama and political turmoil. Since his mother's death ten years earlier, Tom and his father have fashioned a strained peace on their family farm. Everything is frozen under the old man's vicious, relentless control - even, Tom soon discovers, his own future. When a young woman named Carine enters their lives, the complex triangle of intrigue and affections escalates the tension between the two men to the breaking point. After a catastrophic volcanic eruption ignites the nation's smoldering discontent into open revolution, Tom, his father, and Carine find themselves questioning their loyalties to one another and their determination to salvage their way of life.

With the author's trademark spare, spellbinding prose, Gone to the Forest delivers a powerful tale of unfathomable loss and ultimate redemption.
