The second instalment of The Iceberg Trilogy, Come What May, continues the story of Samuel and Rebecca Dalton through the lives of their children, most notably, their beautiful, troubled daughter, Evangelene — Gene to all who knew and loved her.
In 1951 — the summer of her eighteenth year — Gene embarks on a northern odyssey with her eldest brother, Jonathan. Under the northern lights they travel as part of a medical expedition to remote Cree settlements across the grand Canadian wilderness. There, she encounters people and events that will influence her life forever, including the unflappable Sonny Marlow, a young pilot not long returned from Europe where he served as part of the Allied forces in the Berlin Airlift operation.
Drawn together by love but kept apart by her fears, theirs is a tumultuous relationship that is as unpredictable as the woman Gene becomes. From the Saskatchewan prairies to the Rocky Mountains, from James Bay to Vancouver, life and love holds many surprises and trials for Gene and Sonny. Only when Gene can walk away from the devastating shadows towards the light can she and Sonny live the life that held such promise when they were young and on the edge of love.

About the Author
Australian-born Sherryl Caulfield is a marketer, writer and traveller. After twenty years working for some of the world’s leading technology brands and a stint with Outward Bound, she longed to write about the human experience and the redemptive qualities of nature.
In 2006, haunted by an encounter with a woman she met in Canada, Sherryl started what has now become known as The Iceberg Trilogy. From her home in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, she distilled the lives of three generations of women – Rebecca, Evangelene and Lindsay – over the course of a century.
In the telling of their stories she crafted a series rich in landscapes – of sea, land and the human soul. Adventures have been central to her life: climbing Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, trekking to the base camp of Makalu in the Himalayas; and paddling the classic Bowron Lakes canoe circuit in British Columbia, a location that features in two of her novels.
Her formative years were spent on a farm in Cedar Pocket, in South-East Queensland, once home to large stands of one of Australia’s few native deciduous trees, the Red Cedar. Now residing in Brisbane, Sherryl is a partner in marketing agency, Action Communications, and winner of a Gold Serif from The Australian Society of Business Communicators.
