In 2016, Helen, an historian, and David, a government official, journey to a slowly disintegrating Antarctic. Helen goes in search of a story. Three years before their journey, Nara, a young scientist, disappeared from an Antarctic base; she is presumed dead, though her body has never been recovered. When an international emergency forces Helen and David to over-winter in the Antarctic, a more complex story than the official record emerges - of what happened to Nara, the pilot Luke and Nara's lover Alexander, and of what is happening to the ice. Sitting at Nara's desk, reading her diaries on a snowed-in Antarctic base, Helen wonders if the ice will ever give up its secrets.

This book is interesting because of its Antarctic setting and important message about global warming. However, the story itself strains credulity. As well, the characters all have the same voice and are not easily distinguished from each other.
