Editor's Note: When you think of Immigrant stories, you tend to think of the Chinese, Jewish, or Hispanic immigrants coming to North America. You probably don't think "Icelanders." But Christina Sunley's novel, The Tricking of Freya, moves from the suburbs of Connecticut to "New" Iceland in Canada, and then to the real Iceland, as a young woman tries to uncover a trail of family secrets. A manic depressive aunt, a grandfather's missing letters, and why Icelanders were called "Ghoulies."
