Historical Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

With a touch of wistfulness and melancholy, Katherine Littrell narrates this fictional account of three Swedish explorers lost in the Arctic in 1897. Helene Gaudy based her story on the bits of a journal and luminous, barely discernible photos found 33 years after the adventurers disappeared. Littrell's thoughtful, methodical pace reflects their interminable plodding across the vast ice after their hot-air balloon collapses. In a straightforward, lightly accented manner, Littrell contemplatively narrates the lyrical prose describing the romance of nineteenth-century exploration, as well as the harrowing quest for rescue when all hope seems lost. The greatest loss is that of Anna, who was engaged to the team's doomed photographer and never gave up hope of finding him. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
