the artic fury by greer macallister, 432 pp

historical fiction

Another delightful Zoom chat, this time with author, Greer Macallister who shared the backgrounder on 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 – works in a seamless flow from further past, to past to present. The storylines and resolutions came together for a compelling story, even if it was 100% fiction.

That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
