Product description


Penney works hard to fill her canvas with colour and conviction - Sunday Times

A terrific and beautifully written yarn that will make readers yearn to travel and fall in love in a cold climate - The Times

It is a tribute to Penney's superlative descriptive skills that the book's erotic charge is so startlingly effective, and that her icy landscapes cast such a lasting, almost hallucinatory spell. This combination is the true rocket fuel of Under a Pole Star, and what makes it resonate long after the Snow Queen has divulged her long-held secret - Guardian

Curl up with this stunningly evocative tale about an intrepid young female explorer. As immersive as it is mesmerising, this is a novel that you won't ever forget - Heat

This . . . powerful drama is played out against a landscape that dominates [Penney's] imagination - Daily Mail

A beautifully written tale, elegant and well-observed, full of powerful descriptions of a dazzling landscape - Sunday Express

This is an epic love story set against the forbidding beauty of snow meadows. A perfect winter read - Red Magazine

What has marked Penney out from the start is her ability to make her extensive historical research come alive - Sunday Herald

A suspenseful epic, offering a leitmotif of constant unease . . . impressive - Guardian

Unquestionably atmospheric, evocative and . . . rewarding - Independent on Sunday

A tense and delicately written thriller - Observer

A remarkable literary debut . . . brilliantly assures, subtly written - Scotsman

Penney's evocation of the frozen lands of northern Canada couldn't ring truer if she'd spent months wandering through the land with nothing but a pair of huskies and a native tracker for company - Guardian

Within the first fifty pages in was completely in love. It is a testimony to the power of good writing that it can present you with a world that you think you know nothing about, but by the end of [the book] you feel you own it - Armando Iannucci

This subtle and superb novel brings the freezing landscape of the Canadian woods to such vivid life that the landscape itself becomes a strong character within the story - Crimesquad

An absorbing and stylish mystery - Glasgow Herald

A first-rate gripper with a notably sensual as well as psychological understanding of its main characters - Globe and Mail

Book Description

A panoramic historical epic and an unforgettable love story from the author of the Costa-winning The Tenderness of Wolves, for fans of Sarah Perry, Jessie Burton and Donna Tartt
