Hailed as a female Cormac McCarthy, Courtney Collins is surely a rising star in the world of fictional writing. While she was staying with us a few weeks ago, she signed multiple copies of her debut novel The Untold for us to place in the Library as well as to include in our Books By Your Bedside package for participants to take home!
The Untold has been heralded as a "stunning debut novel [with] shades of Water for Elephants and True Grit." Set in the Australian outback in 1921, it is the tale of a female horse thief named Jessie, her bid for freedom, and the two men trying to catch her; one her lover, the other the law.
"Born wild and brave, by twenty-six she has already lived as a circus rider, horse and cattle rustler, and convict. But on this fateful night she is just a woman wanting to survive though there is barely any life left in her. Two men come crashing through the bushland, desperate to claim the reward on her head. But as it has always been for Jessie, it is death, not a man, who is her closest pursuer and companion. And while all odds are stacked against her, there is one who will never give up on her-- her own child, who awaits her."
