A beautifully written novel about an ambitious young woman who tries to defy her destiny as a subservient wife to become an Arctic Explorer. Penney creates a wonderfully authentic and courageous protagonist in Flora Mackie, who grew up on her father's whaling ship in the last years of the nineteenth century. As you accompany Flora on her adventures to Greenland and beyond, you will realise that you're desperate for her to fulfill her ambitions and be happy.
