Death brings the young woman back to the Faroes, the windswept rocky islands of the north where she has never lived but which she has always called home. There she finds her stories entwining with those of her ancestors as she searches for a way to connect with Faroese culture. But is “home” just a place name, or something more?

Island is a literary tale of exile and homecoming, split across three generations of a Faroe islands family, strongly inspired by the author’s own family history. It is a beautiful story of emigration and immigration, and of what it means to belong.
