The Comet Seek­ers

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS - HR

by He­len Sedg­wick, Pen­guin/ Ran­dom House.

Ro­man­tics will adore this sweep­ing, mag­i­cal de­but novel. Roisin and François en­counter one an­other in the icy waste­lands of Antarc­tica. Roisin is a sci­en­tist, fas­ci­nated by the skies and the comets that ap­pear at in­ter­vals through­out her life­time. François is a French chef and part of the sup­port team for the re­search trip. This is their story – the story of their in­di­vid­ual lives and the paths they have taken to find them­selves to­gether in such an in­hos­pitable land­scape. Yet it is also the story of other lives lived over the course of a thou­sand years, lives glimpsed only when a comet burns across the sky.
