One brief but tragic moment out on a frozen Reykjavík lake changes Sóley’s life forever. Now, looking back on the last twenty-three years of her life, she attempts to make sense of it all. The tears, the pain and the lives lost along the way. 

No one ever told her bringing up a son all on her own would be easy but not in her wildest dreams did she imagine it might be so hard. 

Together Jakob and her have walked alone through the worst that Iceland could throw at them and now she’s here to tell you her tale.

But any one of them could be something else now: rapist, murderer, spree shooter, torturer, paedophile. I try to picture them sprayed with blood and gore and it’s easy. I can do it, mentally.
