A wonderful first novel about an couple, he is the British Ambassador to Iceland, she an Icelander returning to Iceland after 12 years away, and the unraveling of their marriage all set against the backdrop of the Icelandic economic meltdown in 2008. The author, a long time blogger of everything Icelandic ( http://icelandweatherreport.com/ ), weaves in insights to economic news as well as Icelandic culture and people with accuracy and intimacy . The characters mirror the world. There is the perfect British man hiding secrets. There are the Icelanders pulled toward the new economy and those that reject it. Even the beauty of the remote Iceland country is tempered with the very real human struggle of trying to prosper in areas where most people are leaving. No simple answers here. A few surprises along the way keeps the story engaging up to the final unraveling that uncovers a moment of hope and love that I found most satisfying. ( )
