Product Description:

As her hand slips from his grip, Patrick's life is shattered, forever changed...

Trapped high on a high mountain face during the worst storm in living memory, a young man is forced to fight the brutal winter for his life - moments after his beloved wife is swept away forever across the ice. Haunted by grief and guilt, Patrick keeps vigil on the mountain for 25 years, in the hope that one day it will release his devastating secret.

Review:

"The mountain and its ferocious weather are brilliantly described" ( The Times)

"Another gripping mountaineering epic, but also much more than that, a fine, poetically written meditation on love, loss and redemption" ( Daily Mail)

"The familiar Simpsonian territory of guilt, survival and loss against a background of elemental terror and beauty" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Arresting" ( Metro)

"The tale is deftly woven with an air of immediacy and a visceral, intimate feel, drawing heavily on Simpson's mountaineering experiences" ( Evening Post)
