Product description

Review

Winner of the 2012 Governor General’s Literary Award
Trillium Award Finalist - 2013

“With meticulous yet seamless attention to historical detail, Linda Spalding transports the reader to 18th century Virginia in her mesmerizing novel …. The Purchase is an epic novel in every way that matters – in scope, depth, and heart.” 
—Jury Citation , The Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize

"Spalding is a gifted prose stylist." 
Ottawa Citizen

"In The Purchase, one man's unsettling betrayal of his own moral code creates unforeseen ripples that sweep over multiple generations. Thanks to Spalding's compassion and the singular brilliance of her narration this transfixing novel weaves a tale that is both intimate in nature and, ultimately, huge in scope."
—Gil Adamson, author of The Outlander
