The Ice Maiden by Sara Sheridan. Published by Severn House

With her husband, a captain on a whaling ship, lost at sea, a desperate Karina, stranded on Deception Island, stows away on a ship, disguised as a cabin boy. Unable to keep her presence a secret, Karina grows close to ship surgeon, Joseph Hooker. But as they sail through the water of Antarctica, the crew begins to fray under the enormous pressure, leaving them all in a very perilous state. Drawing on real life Polar adventurers, Sheridan writes a story that chilled me on a hot summer day
