Fiction. In the rubble of 1947 Berlin, artist Charlotte flees her past and everything she has lost by responding to an ad calling for 'strong women who can cook and do farm work' in Iceland. But painful memories and ghosts follow Charlotte as she struggles to make a new life in a raw and rugged landscape. This powerful debut novel celebrates the power of storytelling as a way of reassembling the fragments of Charlotte's broken self and move her--and everyone she loves--toward peace.
