"Fay Morgan and Nelson Nilsson have each arrived in Inuvik, Canada, about 120 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Both are in search of answers about a family member: Nelson for his estranged older brother, and Fay for her vanished grandfather. Driving Fay into town from the airport on a freezing January night, Nelson reveals a folder left behind by his brother. An image catches Fay<U+2019>s eye: a clock she has seen before. Soon Fay and Nelson realize that their relatives have an extraordinary and historic connection--a secret share in one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of polar expedition. This is the riddle of the 'Arnold 294' chronometer, which reappeared in Britain more than a hundred years after it was lost in the Arctic with the ships and men of Sir John Franklin<U+2019>s Northwest Passage expedition. The secret history of this elusive timepiece, Fay and Nelson will discover, ties them and their families to a journey that echoes across two centuries. In a feat of extraordinary scope and ambition, Ed O<U+2019>Loughlin moves between a frozen present and an ever thawing past. Minds of Winter is a novel about ice and time and their ability to preserve or destroy, of mortality and loss and our dreams of transcending them."--From publisher.
