    Summary

    As Inuksak spoke and I translated, we heard one of the men outside the tent get up and walk out over the thick new snow. I thought nothing of it – I assumed he had other business – but an extraordinary change came about Sir James.

    He lifted his head, looked behind him. His expression showed only a slight strain, but to me, accustomed to reading that rigid face, it was the look of Lot. Inuksak fell silent. Then Sir James rose and bolted. At the departing back of the man, he shouted, “Frank!"

     

     

    An excerpt from the diaries of Dr. John Macpherson, who traveled with Sir James Clark Ross as translator and guide on his 1850 expedition to search for Franklin’s lost men.

    Summary

    Francis considered what to say. “You know that Captain Fitzjames and I became very close over the course of our ordeal. I could not have got through it without him by my side, and I grew to love him—well, almost like a brother.” Sophia’s eyebrows flickered as if she already knew what he was getting at, damn her intuition, but he was determined to get the words out.

    In which the survivors of the expedition return to England, bisexual Victorians have a lot of feelings, and everyone lives happily ever after.
