Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name

Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name
by Vendela Vida

Clarissa Iverton receives the shock of a lifetime following the death of her father. He wasn't her father after all. Her mother, who left the family 14 years earlier, had lived in Lapland with the Sami people prior to moving back to the US. Not knowing who to trust or what to think, Clarissa leaves for Lapland, the land north of Finland. There she learns about the Sami people as well as her mother's mysterious past.

I enjoyed the interesting storyline and the crazy cultural details. Clarissa is a likable character tossed into an astonishing land that has everything to do with her history. This book was fascinating.
