    Franny Stone has always been the kind of woman who is able to love but unable to stay. Leaving behind everything but her research gear, she arrives in Greenland with a singular purpose: to follow the last Arctic terns in the world on what might be their final migration to Antarctica. Franny talks her way onto a fishing boat, and she and the crew set sail, traveling ever further from shore and safety. But as Franny’s history begins to unspool - a passionate love affair, an absent family, a devastating crime - it becomes clear that she is chasing more than just the birds. When Franny's dark secrets catch up with her, how much is she willing to risk for one more chance at redemption?

    Epic and intimate, heartbreaking and galvanizing, Charlotte McConaghy's Migrations is an ode to a disappearing world and a breathtaking pause resister about the possibility of hope against all odds.  

    A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

    "Migrations is a nervy and well-crafted novel, one that lingers long after its voyage is over. It’s a story about our mingling sorrows, both personal and global, and the survivor’s guilt that will be left in their wake." (New York Times Book Review

    "True and affecting, elegiac and imminent.... The fractured timeline fills each chapter with suspense and surprises, parceled out so tantalizingly that it took disciplined willpower to keep from skipping down each page to see what happens.... Ultimately hopeful." (The Washington Post

    “Thrilling.... In piecing together who this mysterious protagonist really is, McConaghy creates a detailed portrait of a woman on the cusp of collapse, consumed with a world that is every bit as broken as she is.” (Time

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Gutting and gorgeous, Migrations is an astounding meditation on love, trauma, and the cost of survival. With soulful prose and deep empathy, Charlotte McConaghy weaves parallel stories of a woman and a world on the brink of devastation, but never without hope. Equal parts love letter and dirge, this is a true force of a book that I read holding my breath from its start to its symphonic finish." (Julia Fine, author of What Should Be Wild

    "Few books have so completely enveloped me into the character’s life (and entwining with mine as well) as Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy. Reminiscent of Annie Proulx’s honest and raw words, this story is poetic and melancholic, with bursts of insight." (Michelle Bear, Edmonds Bookshop, Edmonds, WA) 

    "Migrations is a wonder. I read it in a gasp. There is hope in these pages; a balm for these troubled times. Charlotte McConaghy's words cut through to the bone." (Lara Prescott, New York Times best-selling author of The Secrets We Kept)

    Ziemlich gnadenlos

    Mit diesem Buch kauft Ihr Euch eine Geschichte, die lange bleibt. Eine über eine ganz besondere Liebe, fast unerträgliche Tragik, kaputte Menschen und die deprimierende Aussicht auf eine düstere Zukunft. Obwohl C. McC. dem ganzen eine Prise Hoffnung beigemischt hat, ist die Erzählung doch sehr traurig. Aber auch sehr, sehr ergreifend. Die Autorin nahm mich mit auf die Reise, was nur den wenigsten gelingt (Heute habe ich eine halbe Ewigkeit einen Schwarm Krähen beobachtet, bis mir die Füße eingefroren sind.....).

    Das absehbar scheindende Ende hat keinen Einfluss auf die Qualität der Geschichte - weil´s darauf gar nicht ankommt. Das Ende ist unwichtig.
