Sun at MidnightBook - 2004
Alice Peel is a geologist. She believes in observation, thesis, analysis, and proof. But now she stands along on the desk of a rickety Chilean ship. Instead of the familiar measurable world, everything that lies ahead of her is unknown and unpredictable.Six weeks earlier Alice's life was comfortably unfolding in an Oxford summer. Then, with a suddenly broken relationship behind her, she accepted an invitation to the end of the earth: Antarctica.James Rooker is a man on the run. He's been running since his childhood in New Zealand. Leaving women and homes behind, he keeps moving. Now, there is nowhere further to go but the same small Antarctic research station.Alice discovers a white and silver world lit by luminous sunlight. Nothing has prepared her for the beauty of it, or the claustrophobia of the tiny base shared with eight men and one other woman. The isolation wipes out everyone's past, and tension crackles in the air. But there is a jolt of attraction between Alice and James that is like nothing she has ever known. And it is in Antarctica that she discover something that will changes her life forever...
