Christmas Under The Stars by Karen Swan (Pan Books) ISBN 9781447280163
Meg and Mitch are the perfect couple. They live in a cosy cabin in Banff with their dog and are close to their best friends Lucy and Tuck. The fairy tale comes to an abrupt end when Tuck calls Mitch during a polar storm to ask him to help rescue a father and son. The conditions are abominable and despite Meg begging him not to go, he does.
When Mitch does not return by the time he said he would, Meg panics and since the phone lines are down, she tries to use the radio to ask for help and gets through to an astronaut orbiting the earth in the International Space Station.
Months after that tragic night, Meg and Lucy are estranged because Meg is moving on with her life and Meg hates Tuck because she blames him for Mitch’s death, then the astronaut arrives for the Banff Film Festival and shocking secrets are exposed.
