Dear Doctor Woodruff, I hope you don't mind me writing to you. I think I'm your daughter.... At the height of his career, a British surgeon has found success in both the hospital and at home. He and his wife have everything they want out of life, except the child she longs for, the child Dr. Woodruff secretly believes he may never be ready to parent. Suddenly, the delicate equilibrium of their relationship is blown apart by the arrival of shocking news. Deep in the desolate sub-Arctic wilderness of Canada where Woodruff lived and worked years before, a woman claims he is the father of her thirteen-year-old twins. Woodruff knows it cannot be true -- but DNA tests don't lie. To make sense of the impossible, he must return to that frozen wilderness, where no rules and few laws apply. Leaving his shattered relationship behind, he finds that his well-guarded secrets have even deeper and more sinister layers. But the people he once knew in that godforsaken place guard secrets of their own, and no one -- least of all the ruthless woman at the dark core of this maelstrom -- will help him uncover the truth. The past quickly gains a stranglehold, threatening to unravel everything Woodruff has built -- his marriage, his career. And a man who has made one mistake may pay dearly for another -- and risk destroying his entire future...

"To avoid facing a tragic medical error, Welsh surgeon Dafydd Woodruff flees civilization for Moose Creek, in the Canadian subarctic. After a brief stint in the frozen wilderness, Dafydd returns home. Thirteen years later, a letter arrives claiming he is the father of teenaged twins. Despite DNA evidence to the contrary, Dafydd vehemently denies ever having been intimate with their mother. Pete Bradbury's narration is engaging, offering smooth time shifts between 1992 and 2006, an assortment of original personalities, and a strong sense of place. Bradbury's Welsh accent is completely convincing. Dafydd's troubled thoughts and emotions ring true as he struggles to uncover the mystery locked in an icy past. Strong writing and a compelling narration make this an involving listen. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
