After a failed attempt to reach the North Pole, explorer Ward Bennett falls in love with a beautiful nurse, and he must choose between love and his desire to explore.
Enjoyed reading it. The severity of the weather and the perils faced by the expedition to the Arctic pole is vividly depicted. The Total commitment and The sense of duty of the commanding sailor At sea and the nurse on land appeal to the senses. A highly poetic way of writing. Vijayan.
a thoroughly enjoyable read, well written with strong characters and a plot that made it a must for me.
Powerful beginning describing arctic exploration. Morphs into a convoluted romance. Great peek into fiction writing and bestsellers from a century ago.
