About this book

Intelligent, accessible literary fiction of the highest order. Superbly dramatic and beautifully readable.

A terrific tale of high endeavour and polar peril, this is the story of a scientific expedition to the Arctic in 1855 and the women the explorers left behind.

A brilliant portrait of Victorian society obsessed with mapping and classifying everything under the sun – including the icy Arctic – where the emancipation of women and the evolution of species are the next great revolutions just stirring into life.

"A great, shivery, seductive read."
- Elle
