The Iceberg Trilogy

Books of life and love in Canada

The Iceberg Trilogy is a sweeping saga across continents, lives and loves.

These books tell the story of three generations of remarkable Canadian women, Rebecca Crowe, her daughter, Gene, and granddaughter, Lindsay, a woman living in Sydney, Australia, in the 1990s.

This is a series about love and longing, about mothers and daughters, strangers and lovers, brothers and sisters, the estranged and broken, and, blessedly, about the ones who heal.

Each novel has a heart-in-mouth moment that defines the lives of its heroine. You will never forget their stories. Get ready to soar, weep and cheer.

Seldom Come By

In 1914, two years after the sinking of the Titanic, Rebeca Crowe’s fascination with icebergs leads her to save a shipwreck survivor, Samuel Dalton. Love sparks in the crystal cave of an iceberg but is thwarted by an unreasonable father and the Great War that drags Samuel and his brother, Matthew, to the Western Front as medical officers.

Knowing Rebecca is home safe in Newfoundland brings Samuel great comfort. But before the war is over they both discover that tragedy and terror can strike anywhere. And only when they can fully come to terms with such overwhelming loss, can they truly love again.

Come What May

In 1951, in the summer of her eighteenth year, Gene Dalton, the younger daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Dalton, 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 in the Canadian wilderness.

There she meets 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 fear, theirs is a tumultuous relationship that is as unpredictable as the woman Gene becomes.

Come Full Circle, the third and final book in The Iceberg Trilogy

Come Full Circle

In 1995 in remote British Columbia, a mysterious woman begins letting go of the only person central to her life for eighteen years. On the other side of the continent, Rebecca, her elderly mother, (and heroine in Book 1), remembers secrets hidden from her family for decades. Meanwhile, halfway around the world in Sydney Australia, Rebecca’s granddaughter, on the eve of her thirty-third birthday, realises she is still haunted by what happened to her father when she was a teenager and events that followed.

Eluded by happiness, following a string of disastrous relationships, Lindsay Marlow dives into a quest to understand herself and discover the missing pieces of her life.
