On 24th November Yasmin and her deaf daughter Ruby arrived in Alaska. Within hours they were driving alone across a frozen wilderness
Where nothing grows
Where no one lives
Where tears freeze
And night will last for another 54 days.
They are looking for Ruby’s father.
Travelling deeper into a silent land.
They still cannot find him.
And someone is watching them in the dark.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for approving me
I have never read any of Luptons books before, but I keep hearing so many good things about her books, so I wanted to like this book so very much. But to be honest I was left disappointed. I found some of the plot so unrealistic and found my self going ”what”!! I found myself so tempted to start skimming pages because I started to get bored.
Ten year old Ruby one of the protagonists was deaf I found this aspect of the book really engaging and interesting to read, as I have never read any books with a deaf protagonist.
Clearly Lupton has done her research and I did find the bits describing Alaska fascinating and the names of places were very familiar from Ice Road Truckers and I could quite easily work out where they were.
I still would like to read other work by this author before making a decision on whether I like her style of writing
