Summary
Roisin and Francois are strangers--or so they think--when they meet on the frozen ice sheets of Antarctica as Comet Giacobini fractures overhead. Both are compelled to explore the world but to do so both have left family behind. As we loop back through their lives, glimpsing each of them only when a comet is visible in the skies above, we see how their paths cross as they come closer and closer to this moment. As the story moves back through the centuries to reveal the lives of their ancestors--from an accused witch to a young woman desperately embroidering Halley's Comet onto the Bayeux Tapestry--it shows how strangers can be connected and ghosts can be real, and how the way we choose to see the world can be as tragic or as beautiful as the comets themselves
