    The Edge of the Earth I found this book to be an engaging story of life as it was planned to be verses life how it becomes to be. The character of Trudy, born into a time where her expectations of life, through her families eyes, are to settle down with a nice/stable husband & raise a family. A particular bonus of this book is its wondrous descriptions of sea animals and plants that Trudy finds as she explores the terrain of her new surroundings. (This puts me in mind of Tracy Chevalier's Remarkable Creatures, a book I also treasure.) The Edge of the Earth is unique and gripping; I highly recommend it.
