An exhaustive and scrupulously researched biography. -- Sara Wheeler * The Times *
McGoogan's sharp insight has portrayed a deliciously satisfying portrait. * BBC History Magazine *
'Ken McGoogan has written a scrupulous, surprising, illuminating and, dare one say it, affectionate biography of a woman whose life as a diarist, traveller and social reformer will come to surpass many of her better-known contemporaries. A woman who, in her vigorous and relentless quest for the truth concerning the fate of her husband and his search for the Northwest Passage, has done considerably more to map and make known the kaleidoscopic maze of the Canadian Arctic than a boatload of less well equipped adventurers' -- Robert Edric
Detailed, thorough and compulsive * Mail on Sunday *
This well-written, fast-paced book presents a fascinating picture not only of this iconic widow but also of the age itself. -- THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE, Jan07
