Shortly after her thirteenth 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' - to 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...About the Author:
