I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I brought them to the wilderness because we couldn’t cope with our reality.
The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache.
No people. No technology. No interference.
A chance to piece together what was broken.
But the wilderness is untamed and harsh.
Brutal and unforgiving.
It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.
Tragedy lives there too.
No escaping the truths that won’t let you go.
All you can do is survive where love, no matter how beastly, is the only thing you can truly count on.
Confusing. Wrong. Twisted. Beautiful. Sick.
Love is wild.
And we’re going to set it free.
The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you
To all readers: pay attention to the warning attached to this book! It deals with a subject that is considered taboo. I’m not going to say what it is, that’s a huge spoiler, but there’s also extreme violence involved. If you’re easily offended, do yourself a favor and, skip it. Seriously. I’ve read reviews for books that have warnings, for readers with trigger problems, and it never ceases to amaze me that they’ll give it 1 or 2 stars or DNF, due to the content of the book. It’s not fair to authors, if you don’t heed a warning and then you’re offended by the story, especially one as talented as K. Webster!
I am in awe of the story, the writing and characters! This story moved at such a fast pace that I was so surprised when I reached the end. It had me at the edge of my seat, not wanting to put it down, and I hated closing it for something as needless as sleep. If you’re like me and think warnings on books are a dare, take a chance on The Wild. I double-dare you! You won’t regret it, I promise!
Reed and Sabrina Jamison lose their ten-year old son, Drew, to a tragic accident. But Devon lost her twin brother. Devon is especially close to her dad, he’s really her only ally, and they share a special bond. The family was always a little fragile and when Sabrina, who suffers from severe depression, retreats more and more from her husband and daughter. Devon feels it and is afraid she’ll be alone one day.
“Did Mommy love Drew more? Is that why she’s so sad and won’t talk to me?”
“Of course she loves you just as much, we just need to give her time. She’s sad. We’re all sad. Each of us will grieve in our own ways.”
“Promise you’ll always talk to me Daddy, Even when you’re so sad or angry. Don’t leave me alone.”
After an incident that he can’t ignore, Reed comes up with a plan to sell his multimillion real estate business, and their million dollar home in San Francisco, and move the family to Alaska. They’re going to live in the wilderness, off the grid, so to speak. Pip, as he lovingly calls Devon, is onboard the idea, and devours books and information for their move. At sixteen she graduated from her all-girls private school early and has promised Reed she’ll look into attending college in two years. Poor Sabrina is going along with the plans; she’s usually lost in her own head and memories, and rarely comments one way or another. Reed has high hopes this will make Sabrina come back to them and be present, so to speak.
“Six years after Drew’s death and my wife has yet to snap out of it. Depression is her middle name. Losing Drew was the final straw after years and years of tragedies that plagued our family. There was no coming back after that. She was lost. For me, losing Drew, was the most crushing of all the heartaches in my life. It was real. Tangible. Horrifying. And yet I couldn’t abandon our other child. She was still alive and very desperate for love.”
So with their belongings in an RV and trailer, they make their way to Alaska, to start over. Reed purchased thousands of acres, with no neighbors for hundreds of miles, in the Alaskan wilderness. Armed with survivalist classes, tools to make their new home, and enough supplies to get them started, what can go wrong?
This book is a tale of survival. How many of us could survive in the wilderness, after facing horrible challenges, some of which would easily break others? I can’t decide who the dauntless hero was, when faced with extreme danger, from both man and animals. There were so many moments of heart racing terror and feelings of horror and panic.
It’s also an incredible love story, one that will shock and appall a lot of readers and others that will simply choose to go along and love it for what it is. I’m one that absolutely loved it! Even after all the horrific events they go through they’re still able to find a way to survive and that’s a testament to their strength and love. After everything everyone goes through this is a happy sigh-at-the-end book!
