Publisher's Summary

Shortly after her 13th birthday, Ritva is sent away to Seili, an island in the far north of Finland. A former leper colony, Seili is now home to 'hopeless cases' - women the doctors call mad. But Ritva knows she doesn't belong there.

As biting winter follows biting winter, she longs to be near to her sister and wonders why her father ever allowed her to be taken to this desolate place. Hope arrives in the form of Martta, a headstrong girl who becomes Ritva's only friend.

Making their escape from Seili one evening, they begin an odyssey over a frozen sea, with only their friendship, a small raft and a wolf called Greyheart. When Ritva and Martta reach land, they are welcomed by a tribe of Sami herdsmen.

Ritva begins to imagine a new life and sees a way out of her pain. But before she can achieve this, she must find her beloved sister and return to a family home where dark secrets lie in wait.

Fantastic!

I loved every minute of this book. I just couldn't wait to see what happened to the girls and to learn of the connection they may have had.

Spectacular!

This left me breathless and bereft when I finished it. One of those special books that stays with the reader for ever. Sent me on a search of the history too

Great story. Reading was extremely well done.

Great story, very well written. Reading done extremely well. Portrayal of characters through tempo, accents, tone, just wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed, have already reccommended to several others, and will continue to do so.
