Description: New York & London: Little Brown, (2017) First US printing. Author's very highly praised third novel, the story of two women separated by millennia, but linked by an epic journey that will transform them both. 40,000 years in the past, the last family of Neanderthals roams the earth. After a crushingly hard winter, their numbers are low, [and] the unforgiving landscape takes its toll, and Girl is left alone to care for Runt, a foundling of unknown origin. As Girl and Runt face the coming winter storms, Girl realizes she has one final chance to save her people. . In the modern day, archaeologist Rosamund Gale works well into her pregnancy, racing to excavate newly found Neanderthal artifacts before her baby comes. Linked across the ages by the shared experience of early motherhood, both stories examine the often taboo corners of women's lives.
