What is the book Wilderness about?

A novel by B.E. Jones, Wilderness is the story of British couple Liv and Will who seem to have it all: a rock-solid marriage and a glamorous new life in New York thousands of miles from their provincial hometown, yet who are still young enough to feel that their whole lives are ahead of them.

Until Liv learns about Will’s affair.

Heartbreak is swiftly followed by another emotion: fury. Revenge is her only option, and when Will proposes a trip around America's epic National Parks to give their relationship a fresh start, Liv knows just how to get it…

Wilderness is a twisted love story, where a dream holiday and a supposedly "happily-ever-after" quickly turns into a living nightmare.
