A brother and sister eclipsed by the fame of others struggle to survive a misguided 1855 expedition to the Arctic, he in the icebound wilds and she in stern Philadelphia society. Barrett vividly conveys the details of 19th century life and the harshness of nature and the human heart.

"Barrett tells a gripping story shaped by masterful interpretations of the paradigms of science and the volatile nature of the mind, a wilderness every bit as challenging as the forbidding Arctic."
The above quote sums up my view of this book. I read it many years ago but remember it still.
