An unforgettable debut with an irresistible love story, My Last Continent is a big-hearted, propulsive novel set against the dramatic Antarctic landscapeoriginal and entirely authentic love story (Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project).It is only at the end of the worldamong the glacial mountains, cleaving icebergs, and frigid waters of Antarcticawhere Deb Gardner and Keller Sullivan feel at home. For the few blissful weeks they spend each year studying the habits of emperor and Adlie penguins, Deb and Keller can escape the frustrations and sorrows of their separate lives and find solace in their work and in each other. But Antarctica, like their fleeting romance, is tenuous, imperiled by the world to the north. A new travel and research season has just begun, and Deb and Keller are ready to play tour guide to the passengers on the small expedition ship that ferries them to their research destination. But this year, Keller fails to appear on board. Then, shortly into the journey, Debs ship receives an emergency signal from the Australis, a cruise liner that has hit desperate trouble in the ice-choked waters of the Southern Ocean. Soon Debs role will change from researcher to rescuer; among the crew of that sinking ship, Deb learns, is Keller. As Deb and Kellers troubled histories collide with this catastrophic present, Midge Raymonds phenomenal novel takes us on a voyage deep into the wonders of the Antarctic and the mysteries of the human heart. My Last Continent is packed with emotional intelligence and high stakesa harrowing, searching novel of love and loss in one of the most remote places on earth, a land of harsh beauty where even the smallest missteps have tragic consequencesHalf adventure, half elegy, and wholly recommended (Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves).
