Summary
  • Islas Aleutianas, 1943. Tras la muerte de su hermano menor en Europa, el periodista John Easley siente la necesidad de exponer un oculto y creciente conflicto: la invasión japonesa y la ocupación de las islas Aleutianas de Alaska. Pero cuando John acompaña a la tripulación de un bombardero, el avión es derribado sobre la isla de Attu, y deberá rendirse o sobrevivir en un entorno cruel. A tres mil kilómetros al sur, su mujer Helen no puede aceptar la desaparición de su marido. Desesperada por encontrarlo y reunirse con él, se embarcará en un extraordinario viaje desde la seguridad de su casa de Seattle hasta los confines de la guerra del norte
  • "Following the death of his younger brother in Europe, journalist John Easley is determined to find meaning in his loss. Leaving behind his beloved wife, Helen, he heads north to investigate the Japanese invasion of Alaska's Aleutian Islands, a story censored by the U.S. government. While John is accompanying a crew on a bombing run, his plane is shot down over the island of Attu. He survives only to find himself exposed to a harsh and unforgiving wilderness, known as "the birthplace of winds." There, John must battle the elements, starvation, and his own remorse while evading discovery by the Japanese. Alone at home, Helen struggles with the burden of her husband's disappearance. Caught in extraordinary circumstances, in this new world of the missing, she is forced to reimagine who she is--and what she is capable of doing. Somehow, she must find John and bring him home, a quest that takes her into the farthest reaches of the war, beyond the safety of everything she knows."-- Dust jacket flap
