About this book
Trapped in Edwardian expectations for women, Grace Farringdon dreams of polar expeditions in the footsteps of her hero, Shackleton. Attending a women's college, she finally feels her ambitions beginning to take shape, as she and a group of like-minded friends climb the mountains of Snowdonia and plan a trip to the perilous Alps. 15-years later, Grace is haunted by the terrible events that took place on the mountains, and is finally ready to remember and confess. The intensely suffocating atmosphere and unreliable narrator of this gripping novel make it a must-read for fans of Sarah Waters and Beryl Bainbridge.
