Butterflies in November

Summary: 
Cast adrift in warming Iceland by both lover and husband, a thirty-ish diffident narrator, takes on her friend’s special-needs child, wins two lotteries, and sets off on the Ring Road. Landscape, events, cuisine, and characters are weird and weirdly compelling, funny and touching, like butterflies in November. Complete with recipes.

Summary: 
“Couldn't put it down” doesn't begin to describe this wonderful book. Serious thought, indelible characters, and beautiful writing perfectly paired with a thriller’s pace and the mandatory “shattering conclusion.” Dementia, grief, war crimes, police procedure, family love, memory, politics intertwine—and it’s laugh-out-loud funny too!
