At The Edge Of The Orchard by Tracey Chevalier. Review

This is the story about the Goodenough family who live in the black swamp. The mother and father have no real respect for each  other and their children see this. When their rage reaches its pinnacle one day ,one of their children , Robert , goes in search of a better life far away from this dismal and depressing place leaving all his family behind. 
We catch up with him through the years with letters he writes to his family as he continues his adventures. 
The story is beautiful and tragic , truly grim at times , but Robert is risiliant and does not let all the bad things in life keep him down. The story was definetly a journey with Robert , through years and people he meets and it made great reading . If you are a fan of the author already then I recommend this if you are not then please pick this up!
