Family brings the young woman back to the Faroe Islands - the windswept, rocky northern archipelago where she has never lived but which she has always called home. There she finds her stories entwining with those of her ancestors as she searches for a way to connect with the culture and her kin. Is 'home' just a place name, or something more? Split across three generations of a Faroese family, rooted in the wild beauty of the islands and the author's own history, this is a bewitching tale of exile, homecoming, and what it means to belong.

A sensitive meditation on belonging. --Kirkus Reviews "One of the most special books Ive read in years. Absolutely gorgeous and intimate. It took me away" -- Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins "Island talks about places as if they were people, of fjords as if they were the wrinkles of our souls." -- Valeria Parrella, Grazia "Prose that is as deep as the sea surrounding everything." -- Corriere della Sera "An ode to the legends we still need." -- La Repubblica "Dense and evocative, and manages to combine organic and lifeless matter with the fantastic." -- Wired.it
