Let The Northern Lights Erase Your Name

Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name - Vendela Vida

Set in Lapland and written in a beautifully still style, Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name, is an intriguing and easy read. To tell much about the story would be to give it away but it is very good at what it sets out to do. 


It is about rape and what it does to women. Two women in different situations whose lives are forever changed and who just happen to be mother and daughter.  One finds out she is a daughter of rape and that the mother who deserted her as a child wants nothing to do with her and the other (the mother) is unable to be free and open with anyone and hides away living her life near the arctic circle in a frozen land.
