When Clarissa Iverton was fourteen years old, her mother disappeared and Clarissa was raised by her father. Upon his death, Clarissa, now twenty-eight, discovers he wasn't her father at all. This revelation forces her to confront the truth about her mother's past and her own identity. Abandoning her fiance, Clarissa travels from New York to Helsinki, and then north of the Arctic Circle - to Lapland. There, she learns the way of the Sami, the indigenous people who make their living herding reindeer. In the course of her travels under the northern lights and to a hotel made of ice, Clarissa not only unearths her family's secrets, but she also discovers herself.

Vindela Vida's research enabled her to depict the climate and people of the Far North in a way that makes them accessible to our intellect while keeping them inaccessible to our emotional selves. Family secrets, well-intentioned deceptions, and fierce self-reliance combine to bring forth a captivating story about characters who seem to have no souls. It's a good read, but leaves one with scant hope of future happiness.
