At the turn of the twentieth century, Arctic explorer Edward Mackley sets out to reach the North Pole and vanishes into the icy landscape without a trace. He leaves behind a young wife, Emily, who awaits his return for decades, her dreams and devotion gradually freezing into rigid widowhood. A hundred years later, on a sweltering mid-summer's day, Edward's great-grand-niece Julia moves through the old family house, attempting to impose some order on the clutter of inherited belongings and memories from that ill-fated expedition, and taking care to ignore the deepening cracks within her own marriage

On a remote island in Orkney, a barren place of extraordinary beauty, a curiously-matched couple arrive on their honeymoon.

Alone beneath the shifting skies of this untethered landscape, the professor realizes how little he knows about his new bride and yet, as the days go by and his mind turns obsessively upon the creature who has so beguiled him, she seems to slip ever further from his yearning grasp. Where does she come from? Why did she ask him to bring her north? What is it that constantly draws her to the sea?

"This is a portrait of Diego Velázquez, from his arrival at the court of King Philip IV of Spain in May 1622, to his death 38 years and several hundred paintings later. It is a portrait of a relationship that is not quite a friendship, between a king and his subject and between an artist and his subject. It is a portrait of a ruler, always on duty, and increasingly burdened by a life of public expectation and repeated private grief. And it is a portrait of a court collapsing under the weight of its own excess"--
