"A vivid tale of a canny survivor, Sigga of Reykjavik brings a new heroine to literature. Living a brutal life in rural Iceland, Sigga lifts calves to become strong enough to ward off the farmworkers who prey on her. But escaping to Reykjavik exposes her to worse hardship amid nonstop political turmoil. Iceland gains independence from Denmark, shelters Jewish refugees, and is occupied by Allied soldiers eager to spend and love freely. Plucky, intrepid, and inspiring, Sigga is a rebel for our time."

--Mary Kay Zuravleff, author of Man Alive! and The Bowl Is Already Broken

"As brave Sigga fights her way through the mid-century chaos of war and dislocation to become the person she knew she was meant to be, you can't help falling in love with her."

- Frank S. Joseph, author, To Love Mercy
