* It's a long time since I've read a novel with more pleasure and interest. Voyaguers is a strong story, very well told. Sunday Herald * The prose is crisp ... [but] what stands out is Elphinstone's sense of a strange time and place. The Times * It reminded me of Brian Moore's great novel Black Robe in the respect it plays its material. Above all it is a quest tale that dots its i's and leaves you repletely content. Scotsman * The book brings the period to life with an astonishing amount of detail, which builds up a complete picture of those pioneering times, in a wonderfully gripping and emotionally involving narrative. TabletVom Verlag:
In the early 1800s, Rachel Greenhow, a young Quaker, goes missing in the Canadian wilderness. Unable to accept the disappearance, her brother Mark leaves his farm in England, determined to bring his sister home. What follows is a gripping account of Mark's odyssey and his travels with the voyageurs - the men who canoe Canada's fur-trade route. As adventure and discovery propel the plot forward, Elphinstone takes the reader back in time and intertwines the story with enduring themes of love, war and family ties.
