Summary

Cormac James' The Surfacing is set on board a ship in the 1850s, searching for Franklin's lost expedition. It's a challenging and dangerous endeavour in a very male world - that is until Morgan, the second-in-command of the Impetus, realises there is a pregnant stowaway on board. It is too late to turn back, the ice is closing in, and the child will have to be born into the vast and icy wilderness of the Arctic.

Critic reviews

"Cormac James's writing is very assured, with a harsh poetic edge. His evocations of barren landscape, sea weather, pack ice, frozen skies are terrific. He takes the reader there." (Rose Tremain)
"The surfacing of love in the face of solitude." (Colum McCann)
