    Summary: 
    "An almost unbearably suspenseful story of adventure and survival ... as the story advances, a powerfully pervasive sense of melancholy takes hold of the reader, much as the tiger did young Jaffy, and one wonders if it will ever let go. Though Mr. Jamrach is based on a real historical figure, and Jaffy's voyage on that of the ill-fated whaler Essex, the story is entirely Birch's, and her principal characters are her own wonderful invention. Though Birch is an established writer in England, this is her first novel to be published in the U.S."--Booklist, starred review
