THE ARTIC FURY
(1859 Boston / Artic Expedition, 432 pages)
A completely fictionalized story of an all-women’s expedition setting out to search the Artic for the lost Franklin party in 1859. Writing three simultaneous stories – the expedition, the backstory of the main character, Virginia Reeve and a courtroom trial – flows from further past to past to present. The storylines and resolutions came together for a compelling story, even if it was 100% fiction.
