Latitudes of Melt

(2000)
A novel by

 
 
This bountiful, magical novel opens with the discovery by two fishermen of a baby floating in a cradle on an ice pan in the North Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland in 1912. To the small fishing community into which the foundling is adopted, Aurora, as they name her - with her shock of white hair, one blue eye and one brown - is clearly enchanted. But it is not until Aurora is herself an old woman that she learns the heart-wrenching story behind her miraculous survival on the ice.

"Latitudes of Melt has wonderful moments of clarity and trancendence, but never loses sight of what an ordinary life is." - Carol Shields
