It is August 1616. The whaling ship Heartsease has ventured deep 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.

From the moment that contemplative symphonic music introduces John LeeÕs full, rounded voice, we know weÕre in for a treat with this remarkable first novel by a British nonfiction writer. The story transports us to the Arctic in the 1600s. Thomas Cave, crew member on an English whaling ship, bets that he can survive the dark, frigid winter alone and live to greet the ship upon its return the following summer. In the ensuing months, Cave battles to preserve his body and his mind. John Lee offers a deeply felt, beautifully paced reading of the enigmatic Cave, enlivened by colorful interpretations of CaveÕs shipmates and the people who inhabit his Arctic dreams. This is a mesmerizing tale, entrancingly read. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
