A great choice for a reading group. This was another of those rare books that everybody rated highly. The unique ingredients of a deaf girl, an astrophysicist mother and a wildlife photographer/film producer father all casr adrift in the Arctic Circle create an excellent, ice-cold, thriller whilst also raising awareness about a number of issues. That fracking is the cause of their predicament gives extra depth and there's plenty of material for a book group to get its teeth into: deafness, family roles and relationships, the arctic as an ecosystem, fracking, conservation, sustainable living, clean water and more. And it's a cracking good read!

This book is captivating, and we are lucky enough to be meeting Rosamund Lupton in the summer to talk to her about her novel.

Would thoroughly recommend!

This enchanting well written book covers vast areas of interest. The descriptions of Alaska in winter are vivid and captivating. It treats the culture sensitively. The characterisation is superb with vivid insight into the world of the deaf. These characters live and develop throughout the book. The style is very readable & the thrilling content compulsive.
