Overview

This summer, Free Press will publish five powerful, original, and irresistible novels. The eBook edition of the Free Press Summer Fiction Sampler includes excerpts from Shelter, The Folded Earth, Gone to the Forest, The Other Half of Me, and Some Kind of Peace.

With behind-the-scenes content interspersed throughout, the sampler will transport readers to gorgeous landscapes around the world, from the foothills of the Himalaya to the Welsh countryside to the icy shores of Sweden, and into the riveting, tumultuous lives of five communities of unforgettable characters.
     In Shelter, two young sisters struggle with the devastating loss of their parents, as they’re forced to build a new life on their own in a strange town. Anuradha Roy’s internationally acclaimed The Folded Earth introduces us to the beautiful and brave Maya, a young widow who finds unexpected kinship in a remote Indian village. Gone to the Forest explores post-colonial struggles through the powerful, haunting story of a father and son torn apart. The glitteringly wealthy Anthony family in The Other Half of Me offers a tantalizing glimpse into the glamour and heartbreak of high society in the Welsh countryside. And Some Kind of Peace, a chilling Scandinavian thriller written by a bestselling team of Swedish sisters, follows the grisly, crime-solving exploits of a female psychologist.
