As the boy-king, Edward VI, lays dying in Greenwich Palace, three ships set sail from London to find a new route to China across the North Pole. At their helm is Richard Chancellor, a reluctant pilot-general who is more scholar than sailor. He must leave his entire life behind him: his work, his family and his beautiful, wealthy lover, Kate Thomas. When the ships are forced to land in uncharted Arctic lands, a plucky cabin-boy named Arthur Petty is taken in by a native Sami tribe after his shipmates abandon him. Richard, meanwhile, finds himself at the court of the formidable Tsar Ivan the Terrible who coerces him into waging a war...on Arthur and his new people. When Arthur discovers Ivan - and Richard's - plans for the Sami, he will stop at nothing to save them. Will he, with the help of the headstrong Kate, be able to bring peace to Lapland and return Richard to England? The Frozen Dream is a novel about a forgotten chapter of English history, tucked between the oft-remembered dramas of Henry VIII and Elizabeth. It's an extraordinary tale of courage, endurance, murder, war, betrayal, tragedy and love.
