    Description
    An epic novel of unrequited love and unsettled scores.

    In 1871 the US government sent an expedition to plant the American flag at the North Pole. But the voyage floundered, and half the survivors - nineteen in all - were cast adrift on an ice floe off Ellesmere Island. Afterlands begins with this piece of history, following the stories of three of the adventurers over their six-month ordeal and tracing the shadows it casts over the rest of their lives.

    Moving between the Canadian Arctic, the United States and Mexico, this gripping, beautiful novel explores allegiance and betrayal, the sacrifices needed for survival and the ultimate cost of loyalty in an age as fraught with deepening nationalisms as our own.
