Carolyn McCullagh has written an informative book dealing with Inuit culture and wartime espionage. She has done this in a way that makes reading sheer pleasure. I highly recommend this novel. Evelyn Smith

This is a fascinating story of a woman coming out of a personal shell of widowhood. In doing so, she solves a mystery and bridges two cultures. She travels to the Arctic to ferret out the genealogy of her late husband only to find a new life. The mystery of her late father-in-law’s strange WWI experiences is supplanted by the uncertainty of her relationship with a half Inuit man who lives in two worlds. That uncertainty creates tensions during an Arctic educational adventure. Leave it to a polar bear to break the ice! Caroline McCullagh’s deft storytelling teaches us much about a culture of which most of us are unaware. You will love this book.

I enjoyed this book because of the interesting characters and the plots. It was educational about Inuit culture as well as World War II. Hard to figure how these two are tied together but they were. And LOVE of course! I can’t wait to read the next one. I want to see how these characters develop.
