Intriguing title. Were there any scars in it, Tanner?

No scars, Baker. And really, everyone was beautiful. Well, except for the beginning when the MC lost that last five pounds that was holding her back. lol

Me, too, 2nd Lt. Sue! Judging from the teaser chapter of the upcoming one in the series, it's going to be excellent as well. :)

56. The Big Bang Symphony: A Novel of Antarctica, by Lucy Jane Bledsoe. Terrace Press (trade imprint of Univ. of Wisconsin Press), 2010.
4+stars
Basically about three women whose paths cross while they are working in Antarctica. There's Rosie Moore, a free-spirited woman who has several Antarctica years under her belt. Mikala Wilbo is a brilliant composer who has come to Antarctica with the Artists in Residence program, but she's really trying to track her biological father down. And then there's Alice Neilson, a doctoral student who has always lived with her mother, and this is her first chance at independence.

The story starts out with a plane crash and then slowly reveals the characters to us. All three women fall in love but the story is about way more than that. It's really about people trying to find themselves. I loved it and will be looking for more of Bledsoe's books. :)
