Description - The Tricking of Freya by Christina Sunley
Freya Morris is living in New York, far removed from her family and her history, when she's summoned back to the formative place of her youth, a remote Canadian village called Gimli, populated by Icelandic transplants, where her ancient grandmother clings to life. There she picks up the thread of a family secret - one that leads her through the past she has nearly forgotten, and ultimately back to Iceland. "The Tricking of Freya" is a beautifully-written novel about an immigrant family and a little-known nation.
