ARC Arrival: A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve



A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve

I received this from Miriam Parker at Hachette Books. I have been reading Anita Shreve since A Wedding in December came out and have read all of her new books and am in process of working my way through her backlist so I was excited to receive this new one by her.

Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Publish Date: September 22, 2009
Margaret and Patrick have been married just a few months when they set off on what they hope will be a great adventure-a year living in Kenya. Margaret quickly realizes there is a great deal she doesn't know about the complex mores of her new home, and about her own husband.

A British couple invites the newlyweds to join on a climbing expedition to Mount Kenya, and they eagerly agree. But during their harrowing ascent, a horrific accident occurs. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Margaret struggles to understand what happened on the mountain and how these events have transformed her and her marriage, perhaps forever.

A CHANGE IN ALTITUDE illuminates the inner landscape of a couple, the irrevocable impact of tragedy, and the elusive nature of forgiveness. With stunning language and striking emotional intensity, Anita Shreve transports us to the exotic panoramas of Africa and into the core of our most intimate relationships.

Congrats on getting this one. I was thrilled when my copy came last week, as I did not think I would get one.

I've read everyone of Shreve's books --she is a fav author. ENJOY
