Ready, Steady, Review… Arctic Star

In our new fast feature, we recommend a terrific title in 60 words.

In 1943, Frank and fellow Naval recruits join an Arctic Convoy mission to Russia – a voyage through hostile seas to a hostile port, that will test their bond to shattering point.

Artful descriptions ensure that we wholly experience each sensation – from grief to brutal cold – with the characters, and (as always with Tom Palmer) we finish knowing, and caring, much more than when we started.
