Praise for this book

"I feel like this is a book Jon Krakaur would write if he wrote love stories. A heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting story, My Midnight Sun has something for everyone--part adventure, part romance, part travel journal. But at its core, Shors has given us a beautiful novel about life and death, and how love inspires us to make the most of our short time here on this planet." - Tiffanie DeBartolo

"My Midnight Sun, in its essence, is an alluring tale of tragic loss and a man's desperate search for an emotional salve. It's also an intriguing study of a complex relationship between two people with little in common except for a need to save and be saved. Set against exotic locations ranging from the suffocating streets of Bangkok to the dangerous solitude of the Nepalese mountains, My Midnight Sun is a compelling read." - Carter Wilson
