With a fresh new package, Linda Spalding's award-winning national bestseller, The Purchase, will be launched in time for her much anticipated new novel coming out this fall.

In 1798, a young Quaker father and widower is forced to leave his home in Pennsylvania with his fifteen-year-old new wife and his five children to establish a life elsewhere. When he soon finds himself the owner of a young slave boy, a chain of events is set in motion that will lead to two murders and the family's strange relationship with a runaway slave named Bett.

Lyrical yet as hard-edged as the realities of pioneer life, Spalding's writing is nothing short of stunning, her characters and their stories unforgettable. Atmospheric and gripping, powerful and morally complex, this spellbinding, cinematic novel of a family's hardships as they establish themselves in slave-ridden Virginia before the Civil War brings to mind Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain, Daniel Woodrell's Winter's Bone, and the work of Cormac McCarthy.
