Summary
Freya has come to Antarctica ostensibly to undertake a photographic expedition to retrace Frank Hurley's iconic photographs--but also to escape a stifling relationship. Once she is there, though, living in the cramped and close confines of Davis Station, the extraordinary world of Antarctica gets under her skin and she starts to unfurl, finding her world change in ways she would never previously had thought possible. Weaving in a vivid recreation of Douglas Mawson's ill-fated 1911- 1914 Antarctic expedition into the contemporary story of a woman coming to terms with the end of her marriage, this is a poetic, multi-stranded novel of present and past, hope and tragedy, love and loss. It is not only a love story and a heart-stopping, intensely moving polar adventure story, but also a story of place, bringing to vivid life the extraordinary landscape of Antarctica, the frozen continent that intrigues us all--Cover, p.4
