The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall

‘It’s not often she dreams about them.  During the day they are elusive, keeping to the tall grass of the Reservation, disappearing from the den site…  Their vanishing acts have been perfected.  At night they come back.’

For almost a decade Rachel Caine has turned her back on home, kept distant by family disputes and her work monitoring wolves on an Idaho reservation.  But now, summoned by the eccentric Earl of Annerdale and his controversial scheme to reintroduce the Grey Wolf to the English countryside, she is back in the peat and wet light of the Lake District.

The earl’s project harks back to an ancient idyll of untamed British wilderness – though Rachel must contend with modern-day concessions to health and safety, public outrage and political gain – and the return of the Grey after hundreds of years coincides with her own regeneration: impending motherhood, and reconciliation with her estranged family.

The Wolf Border investigates the fundamental nature of wilderness and wildness, both animal and human.  It seeks to understand the most obsessive aspects of humanity: sex, love, and conflict; the desire to find answers to the question of our existence; those complex systems that govern the most superior creature on earth.

The Wolf Border, Sarah Hall’s fifth novel, is certain to confirm her as a global force at the vanguard of contemporary fiction.  It is the work of a young novelist hitting full maturity.

Peer & Press Reviews

Hall evokes her landscapes with bewitchingly vivid prose.  Her writing is gutteral and visceral, and her characters are raw and sinewy…  Hall is a writer of both rare vision and talent.

Sunday Times

What an achievement – so vivid, so visceral, so vital.  I can see the wolves and the characters in the landscape like a movie in my head.  Every time I picked it up, I struggled to put it down again.  It’s a beautiful construction.

Val McDermid, award-winning crime novelist
