Rosie Thomas writes for magazines and newspapers as well as her fiction. When not writing she spends her time travelling and mountaineering. In 1997 she competed in the Peking to Paris Motor Rally, and she has climbed Mont Blanc as well as travelling to Everest and the Antarctic.From AudioFile:
David Rintoul's rich tones and intelligent characterizations bring just the right touches of self-mockery, excitement, doubt, and humor to Rosie Thomas's fascinating adventure story. At the heart of the novel are Mt. Everest and a love triangle. Sam McGrath sees Finch Buchanan at an airport. He changes his ticket and follows her to Vancouver. But Finch loves another man, a man she met years earlier. Finch, an avid climber, has signed on as the doctor to an expedition of international climbers attempting Everest. The three principles come together in Katmandu. The novel proves more than a starry-eyed romance when it begins to climb. Thomas delves into the reasons that drive people to climb mountains and their lack of reason when it comes to falling in love.
