It is 1889, and Flora Mackie, a whaler’s daughter from Dundee, is leading  a British expedition across the Arctic Circle with a team of men who believe a woman has no place in this harsh male environment. From  the Costa Prize-winning author of ‘The Tenderness of Wolves’, the novel explores the corrosive power of ambition set against the stark and  deadly beauty of northern Greenland.
