Surfacing by Margaret Atwood

Atwood's second novel, hailed by the New York Times as 'one of the most important novels of the twentieth century'. An exceptional novel from the winner of the 2000 Booker Prize.

A young woman returns to northern Quebec to the remote island of her childhood, with her lover and two friends, to investigate the mysterious disappearance of her father. Flooded with memories, she begins to realise that going home means entering not only another place but another time. As the wild island exerts its elemental hold and she is submerged in the language of the wilderness, she sees that what she is really looking for is her own past.
