Summary:

In 1616, an English whaling ship heads for home, leaving behind the quiet, headstrong Thomas Cave, who has bet the rest of the crew that he can spend a winter on this Arctic island-alone. But nothing so threatens the sailor as his own mind, haunted by the remembrances of another life and a lost love.

"[A] shimmering novel....Harding probes Cave's solitude and his responses to a landscape that, in a heartbeat, can be unrelentingly bleak or dazzling. It's a simple story of spiritual purification, and it is handled beautifully throughout."-Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

    what an intriguing story, read with passion. Not particularly a "feel good" story, but one to give alot of thought to. Would definitely recommend!
