Product Description

“An intelligent, gripping read . . . Sun at Midnight conjures a world of danger, intimacy, harsh beauty, and infinite mystery that held me totally in thrall.” ―Book Reporter

By the critically acclaimed author and “master storyteller” (Cosmopolitan), Sun at Midnight is a sweeping saga of loss and redemption. The center of this gripping romance, Alice Peel is a geologist and Oxford professor who, as a scientist, relies on method, precision, and tangible proof. But when her relationship collapses spectacularly, she finds herself in her thirties, alone, childless, and tied to her work. Alice realizes it’s time for a change from her routine, so she accepts an invitation to join a group working in a research station at the southernmost point of the earth: Antarctica.

Upon arrival, she is awestruck by the strange allure of a continent painted in shades of blue and white, lit by an unearthly permanent sunlight. And nothing has prepared her for the close confines of a small base shared with eight men and one other woman. It’s in these close quarters that she develops a strong attraction to a man shrouded in danger and mystery. In this beautiful but unforgiving environment, Alice discovers something that could change her life forever . . . if she survives. “Illuminating” and “quietly revealing” (Publishers Weekly), Sun at Midnight is an epic love story and adventure in which Thomas couples her rich storytelling with the perilous beauty of the Antarctic.

Rosie Thomas is the author of numerous critically acclaimed, bestselling novels, and has twice won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award. Born in a small village in northern Wales, Thomas discovered a love of traveling and mountaineering when her children were grown. In the years since, she has climbed in the Alps and the Himalayas, competed in the Peking to Paris car rally, and trekked in the footsteps of Shackleton on South Georgia Island.
