On 24th November Yasmin and her deaf daughter Ruby arrived in Alaska. Within hours they were driving alone across a frozen wilderness where nothing grows, where no one lives, where tears freeze and night will last for another 54 days. They are looking for Ruby's father. Travelling deeper into a silent land. They still cannot find him. And someone is watching them in the dark.

On the whole we enjoyed this novel. We found it quite profound in the title and the way it blended so well with the character of the child and the surroundings they found themselves in. Some little suspension of belief was needed for the heroism but overall a great read we gave it 8 out of 10
