Franny Stone has always been the kind of woman who is able to love but unable to stay. Leaving behind everything but her research gear, she arrives in Greenland with a singular purpose: to follow the last Arctic terns in the world on what might be their final migration to Antarctica. Franny talks her way onto a fishing boat, and she and the crew set sail, traveling ever further from shore and safety. But as Franny’s history begins to unspool—a passionate love affair, an absent family, a devastating crime—it becomes clear that she is chasing more than just the birds. When Franny's dark secrets catch up with her, how much is she willing to risk for one more chance at redemption?

Epic and intimate, heartbreaking and galvanizing, Charlotte McConaghy's Migrations is an ode to a disappearing world and a breathtaking page-turner about the possibility of hope against all odds.

Heart wrenching

4.5 stars - this one has me reeling. Truly an emotional roller coaster that I felt in every part of my heart. An incredibly well written story with such vivid details. The author beautifully spins the tale of a woman deep in the thralls of grief and depression intertwined with the human impact on the environment. This book challenged me to feel so many different things and was consistently thought provoking - an attribute in writing I very seldomly find in a fiction novel. Heart wrenching in all the right ways. I’ll be thinking about this one for quite some time.

Such unusual observations that are yet familiar at the same time. My favorite book in years.
