Poignant story , well done , and really enjoyed it , eventhough in places it was sad what Owen and his grandpa were experiencing . Especially Owen who did not know about why his Grandpa's actions and memory were peculiar . Would recommend this book for an older child and any adult age .

A truly expressive book and I'm not young. It handles 3 generations, and especially the poet Stephan G. Stephansson. To land in Iceland and be carried along, a depth of appreciation to Jessica. The creative ark whether to step aboard, alone heading out without a compass.
Alberta had someone special....
