Seal Woman

Author(s): Solveig Eggerz

Description: In the rubble of post-World War II Berlin, artist Charlotte flees her past and everything she’s 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 debut novel celebrates the twin powers of storytelling and art as ways to reassemble the fragments of Charlotte’s broken self and move her¿and everyone she loves¿toward peace.
