She even lives in the apartment that she inherited from her grandaunt, a midwife with a unique reputation for her unconventional methods. As a terrible storm races towards Reykjavik, D mhildur discovers decades worth of letters and manuscripts hidden amongst her grandaunt's clutter. Fielding calls from her anxious meteorologist sister and visits from her curious new neighbor, D mhildur escapes into her grandaunt's archive and discovers strange and beautiful reflections on birth, death, and human nature. With her singular warmth and humor, lafsd ttir gives us a beguiling novel that comes direct from the depths of an Icelandic winter, full of hope for spring.
