"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Traumatised by the death of her husband, Sarah Maher is surviving precariously in the harsh landscape of Alaska, a young woman apparently determined to fight nature single-handed.
But Sarah must return to the city to see her dying mother. Staying in the suburbs, she finds much of 'civilisation' more frightening then the mountains wilds, and now she must decide where her true home is.
Frightening, funny, exciting and intensely moving, 'Due North' is a novel of loss and redemption, a long look into the human heart and the obsessive need to conquer fear.
"A standout…a starkly dramatic odyssey that far out-distances the hands-off pieties of even the best nature writing"
