I love this novel very much! I am a science fiction fan, and Good Morning, Midnight could definitely be classified as such, but don't let that keep you away.  The plot is character driven, told through beautiful and lyrical writing. Returning from a long voyage in space, astronaut Sully and her crewmates find that communications from Mission Control on earth have suddenly gone dark. At the same time, Augustine, an aging scientist at a remote research outpost in the Arctic, decides to stay put even when an evacuation order is issued.
With piercing emotional insight, Lily Brooks-Dalton captures the heartbreaking regrets and profound bravery of Sully and Augustine - whose stories gradually twine together in surprising ways. Good Morning, Midnight is an amazing story of the power of love at the end of the world.
