My father had an expression for a thing that turned out bad. He'd say it had gone west. But going west always sounded pretty good to me. After all, westwards is the path of the sun. And through as much history as I know of, people have moved west to settle and find freedom. But our world had gone north, truly gone north, and just how far north I was beginning to learn.

I took a chance on this novel - And it is a rare combination of original plot and humane sensibility. I don't want to give away what happens, so I'll just say that if, like me, you look for audio books that have the right narration for that story, voice acting that pulls you in, successful pacing, and substance,,Far North is unusually rewarding.
