According to Kirkus Discoveries, Thirty Below is "a gripping portrait of life stripped to the bare essentials." And rightly so, for Thirty Below features the personal growth of a twenty-nine year old, restless and hopelessly romantic woman who runs away to the wilds of Alaska with a man she has just met through internet dating to escape her repetitive life in southern California where she has experienced one too many failed relationships. In her new "home" Carrie Ritter finds surviving the winter off the grid bewildering and uncomfortable and, during her struggles in a one room log cabin without a phone, electricity or plumbing, she is forced to deal with days without sunlight, sub-zero temperatures, blizzards, wolves, cabin fever and an eccentric native Alaskan intruder. But, as she falls in love with her cabin mate and the natural landscape that defines her new life, tragedy overtakes her as does her psychotic former lover who hunts her down, bent on revenge.
