Two men and a woman in a thorny love triangle are forced to band together to save the crew of a ship sinking in the ice fields of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Gertrude MacMichael, a high-spirited young woman, sea captain Frederick Ashburn and his mysterious best friend, Dave Wilson embark on a mission aboard an icebreaker to save Gertrude's father, whose ship is caught in pack ice. Adventure escalates when, during the attempt to return to port, the icebreaker Shannon itself becomes victim to the ice.
In The Sacrifice of the Shannon Hickman gathers an unusual combination of themes--technology and business development, natural history and the environment, the role of women in business and finance--into a fast-paced, gripping narrative.
