From the #1 bestselling author of The Woman in the Attic

Four best friends. One wrong turn. One shack hidden in the mountains.

To celebrate their graduation from university, Sadie, Julie, Morgan, and Jonah decide to spend a week backcountry hiking in western Newfoundland, tackling a remote route through the Long Range Mountains. Zealous, rambunctious, and overconfident, the group embarks on their self-proclaimed adventure of a lifetime in Gros Morne National Park.

But alone on a trail with nowhere to hide, secrets begin to ooze through the cracks of their bond. The farther into the forest the group moves, the more they drift apart, until their friendship becomes as difficult to navigate as the look-alike trees. And when they stumble upon an illegal hunting shack, the companions suddenly find themselves in possession of dangerous knowledge. Injured, separated, and being hunted by expert poachers, the friends must find a way to get back home before they succumb to the dangers of the trail—and the dangers posed by one another.

Alone on the Trail is a riveting merger of adventure and drama that will keep you reading late into the night—and make you think twice before wandering, unprepared, into the Newfoundland wilderness.

Organized into 13 parts as opposed to traditional chapters, Hepditch utilizes her creative license to cleverly detail a tightly woven tale in the form of a series of first person character monologues. This organizational technique is central to the development of the four characters, allowing readers an opportunity to really get to know the internal conflict that each character brings to the developing storyline. Struggles with acceptance, dealing with loss and abandonment, and narcissistic jealousy and gaslighting are revealed bit by bit over the course of the story, revealing just enough for the reader to gain an accurate understanding of the growing tension experienced by the four friends as they attempt to survive while on their "trip of a lifetime". By divulging the frailties of each of the characters in such a way, readers will discover that they themselves experience responses ranging from happiness, to disappointment, excitement and anger. The struggles are real and relatable and the experience of riding that rollercoaster of emotion is palpable. Alone On The Trail by Emily Hepditch is a must read!! This riveting account has great cinematic appeal and one that I would sure love to see in living color!-- Stephanie Collins - Fireside Collections --
"Taut with suspense, “Alone on the Trail” will have you holding your breath until you see just who will make it out of the woods alive … if anyone does at all. With an ending that will leave you reeling, this book is a cannot miss for 2021.-- Nicole Little - Nicole's Reviews --
This strong follow-up to Hepditch's debut, "The Woman in the Attic" proves she's no one-hit-wonder. She's setting standards ( and a schedule ) for an accomplished output.-- Joan Sullivan - The Telegram --
