Summary

It is August 1616. The whaling ship Heartsease has ventured high into the Arctic, and the crew must return home before the ice closes in. All, that is, save Thomas Cave. He makes a wager that he will remain there alone until next season, though no man has yet been known to have survived a winter this far north. So he is left with provisions, shelter, and a journal - should he not live to tell the tale.

Critic reviews

"A first novel? The shimmering beauty and poise of the writing make that hard to believe....Stoke the fire, roast some chestnuts, and get reading." (The Times)
