Editorial Reviews

Review

The human story behind the well-known heroism is beautifully told. After more than a century in the shadows, the wives left behind by the Scott expedition are brought vividly, poignantly to life. A compelling, unforgettable book.--Tracy Borman

A fascinating book that lifts the veil on an untold chapter of Polar history.--Michael Smith, author of An Unsung Hero: Tom Crean and Shackleton: By Endurance We Conquer

A first-rate expedition into lives of quiet heroism. Beautifully written and researched, Widows of the Ice is a compelling insight into the world of Edwardian women navigating fraught destinies. This fresh perspective on society and polar exploration deserves to be widely read.--Lucy Adlington, author of The Dressmakers of Auschwitz

The women who supported polar exploration are often wrongly neglected, their contribution underplayed - this book sensitively introduces us to their lives in the aftermath of their beloveds' deaths.--Dr Claire Warrior, polar historian

This is the most mesmerising book! I wanted to follow these women's lives - their highs and lows - and couldn't turn the pages quickly enough. Their unique personalities leap out through Anne's expressive writing, and they appear so three-dimensional against such carefully constructed contemporary backdrops. This is social history at its best!--Dr Janina Ramirez
