Summary
It's the early 1930s. Antartic open-sea whaling is a booming and territorial race for the mysterious continent is in full swing. Aboard a ship setting sail from Cape Town carrying the Norwegian whaling magnate Lars Christensen are three women: Lillemor Rachlew, who tricked her way on to the ship and will stop at nothing to be the first women to land on Antartica; Mathilde Wegger, a grieving widow who's been forced to join the trip by her calculating parents-in-law; and Lars's wife, Ingrid Christensen, who has longed to travel to Antartica since she was a little girl and has made a daunting bargain with Lars to convince him to take her. As they head south through icy waters, the race is on for the first women to land on Antartica. None of them expect the outcome and none of them know how they will be changed by their arrival. Based on the little-known true story of the first women to ever set foot on Antartica, Jesse Blackadder has captured the drama, danger and magnetic pull of exploring uncharted places in our world and our minds
