Synopsis of this title

A novel of mothers lost and found, 'Wilderness' is part roaring adventure, part family drama - with a charm that's all Roddy Doyle's. While Tom and Johnny are on a husky safari in Finland, their half-sister Grainne stays behind to face the mother who abandoned her. But Tom and Johnny are too caught up in their adventure to think of home - until they find themselves lost in the snow, in a desperate struggle for survival...

Reviews of this title


Library Thing
Tom and Johnny are in Lapland on a great adventure with their mother, Sandra. But in the wilderness anything can happen. Someone can be lost, and how are they to be found? Their step-sister Grainne is at home in Dublin. She knows what it is like to lose someone. Her mother left when Grainne was six. The two halves of this book are intertwined throughout the narrative, and bound with tension.
