520    Antarctica is a vortex that draws you back, season after 
       season. The place is so raw and pure, all seal hide and 
       crystalline iceberg. The fishbowl communities at McMurdo 
       Station, South Pole Station, and in the remote field camps
       intensify relationships, jack all emotion up to a 10. The 
       trick is to get what you need and then get out fast. At 
       least that's how thirty-year-old Rosie Moore views it as 
       she flies in for her third season on the Ice. She plans to
       avoid all entanglements, romantic and otherwise, and do 
       her work as a galley cook. But when her flight crash-lands,
       so do all her plans. Mikala Wilbo, a brilliant young 
       composer whose heart--and music--have been frozen since 
       the death of her partner, is also on that flight. She has 
       come to the Ice as an artist-in-residence, to write music,
       but also to secretly check out the astrophysicist father 
       she has never met. Arriving a few weeks later, Alice 
       Neilson, a graduate student in geology who thinks in 
       charts and equations, is thrilled to leave her dependent 
       mother and begin her career at last. But from the start 
       she is aware that her post-doc advisor, with whom she will
       work in Antarctica, expects much more from their 
       relationship. As the three women become increasingly 
       involved in each other's lives, they find themselves 
       deeply transformed by their time on the Ice. Each falls in
       love. Each faces challenges she never thought she would 
       meet. And ultimately, each finds redemption in a depth and
       quality of friendship that only the harsh beauty of 
       Antarctica can engender
