Summary
2Tell me the story of Everest,3 she said, a fervent smile sweeping across her face, creasing the corners of her eyes. 2Tell me about this mountain that{u2019}s stealing you away from me.3 In 1924 George Mallory departs on his third expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Left behind in Cambridge, George{u2019}s young wife, Ruth, along with the rest of a war-ravaged England, anticipates news they hope will reclaim some of the empire{u2019}s faded glory. Through alternating narratives, what emerges is a beautifully rendered story of love torn apart by obsession and the need for redemption. " -- amazon.com
