In 1855, California Trail guide Virginia Reeve is summoned by an eccentric Brit with a compelling offer.  Lady Jane Franklin wants her to lead a dozen women into the Arctic in search of the ships from her husband’s lost expedition.  Four earlier search attempts have failed.  She has decided only a radical new approach my succeed: put women in charge.  A year and a half later, Virginia is back in Boston on trial for murder.  Six women survived the expedition and those willing to support Virginia sit in the front row.  The Arctic Fury uses the true story of Lady Jane Franklin’s tireless attempts to find her husband’s lost ships to weave a tale of bravery, intrigue, perseverance, and hope.
