On the day of her father's funeral, twenty-eight-year-old Clarissa Iver-ton discovers that he wasn't her biological father after all. Her mother disappeared fourteen years earlier, and her fianc has just revealed a life-changing secret to her. Alone and adrift, Clarissa travels to mystical Lapland, where she believes she'll meet her real father. There, at a hotel made of ice, Clarissa is confronted with the truth about her mother's his-tory, and must make a decision about how--and where--to live the rest of her life.
