A haunting love story set in the icy wilderness of an Arctic winter It is August, 1616. The whaling ship Heartsease has ventured high into the Arctic, but the crew must return home before the ice closes in. All, that is, save Thomas Cave. He makes a wager that he will remain there alone until the next season, though no man has yet been known to have survived a winter this far north. So he is left with provisions, shelter, and a journal -- should he not live to tell the tale. Praise for The Solitude of Thomas Cave 'Georgina Harding's exquisite first novel is a masterpiece of mood and location.' --Daily Telegraph 'A masterful evocation of the far north.' --Magnus Mills '[An] astonishing and risk-taking piece of imaginative writing. Her language is superb - evocative and poetic. She conjures up a mysterious and haunting world that lingers in the imagination.' --Charles Paliser
