A novel of intrigue, adventure and a little bit of fantasy. An offer to switch winter snow in Canada for summer sunshine in New Zealand presents a wonderful opportunity for magazine writer Blossom O’Sage. Her assignment is simple: find and interview the man who spent a long lonely winter in Antarctica’s Dry Valley region. The challenge is that Dermot Strongman and his family, through extreme circumstances, quietly disappeared from the public eye some 30 years earlier. They have effectively vanished. Blossom’s investigation leads to a tiny village along the remote and beautiful Forgotten World Highway. Her story uncovers the strangest of tales and a chance encounter that forces her to confront her own emotions. Blossom finds courage in the shadows and realizes that what we see is perhaps only one-ninth of what exists.
