Neverhome

A Novel

By Laird Hunt
Narrated by Mary Stuart Masterson / 5 hours 28 minutes

The award-winning, "astonishing" (Paula McClain), and "beautiful" (Paul Auster) story of a woman who disguised herself as a man to fight for the Union Army during the Civil War.

  • A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice
  • Inaugural winner of the Grand Prix de la Littérature Américaine




She calls herself Ash, but that's not her real name. She is a farmer's faithful wife, but she has left her husband to don the uniform of a Union soldier in the Civil War. Neverhome tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause.


Laird Hunt's dazzling new novel throws a light on the adventurous women who chose to fight instead of stay behind. It is also a mystery story: why did Ash leave and her husband stay? Why can she not return? What will she have to go through to make it back home?


In gorgeous prose, Hunt's rebellious young heroine fights her way through history, and back home to her husband, and finally into our hearts.
