Historical Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Dramatic and atmospheric, this audiobook is a powerful story about loss, determination, and hope. Narrator Eva Kaminsky voices a wide range of complex, multidimensional characters led by pioneer Virginia Reeve. Based on the true story of Lady Jane Franklin's search for her husband's lost ship and crew, the story follows Virginia as she leads 12 women on an expedition to the Arctic in the early 1850s. A year later, only a few of the women return, and Virginia is on trial for murder. Kaminsky provides perfect transitions as the story alternates between Virginia's trial, preparation for the trip, and the expedition itself. With well-crafted pacing, sharp dialogue, and vivid descriptions, the story comes alive for listeners. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
