Three Day Road

by Joseph Boyden
£8.99   paperback  Orion Publishing Company (2006)

Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden It is 1919 and Niska, the last Canadian medicine woman to live off the land, has received word that one of the two boys she saw off to the Great War has returned. Xavier Bird, her sole living relative, is gravely wounded and addicted to the army's morphine.
 
As Niska slowly paddles her canoe on the three-day journey to take Xavier back to his home, travelling through the stark but stunning landscape of Northern Canada, their respective stories emerge - stories of Niska's life amongst her kin and Xavier's horrifying experiences in the killing fields of Ypres and the Somme.
 
Niska realises that in the aftermath of war, Xavier's soul is hovering somewhere between the worlds of the living and the dead - but will the three-day journey home be enough to save him?
