Incredible Reader Response to Secrets of Eden

We are overwhelmed by the love from our readers about this book- Keep the love coming.

Secrets of Eden

We’ve been blown away by the growth of Read It Forward over the last several months. For example, we received over 20,000 requests for Chris Bohjalian’s Secrets of Eden! Wow. That’s a lot of hungry readers out there. We wish we could send books to everyone who enters for the chance to get one, but alas, it’s impossible. We send as many as we can every month. Secrets of Eden really is an extraordinary literary thriller, a page-turning read with characters who will haunt you long after you finish reading.

Watch the short documentary video, Chris Bohjalian Reveals Secrets of Eden. In the video Chris takes us to South Lincoln, Vermont, to some of the locations that provided inspiration for the book.

Chris is on his book tour now and would love to meet you. Check out the events section on his site to see if he’ll be coming to your town.

Chris Bohjalian is grateful for your amazing response to our giveaway offer and would like to send a signed bookplate to everyone who entered. This way, if you decide you’d like to buy Secrets of Eden, you can add the signed bookplate to your copy, and voila! Autographed first edition! Unfortunately this promotion has ended; however, sign up for our email list to be eligible to similar giveaways!
