    1. This book is very clearly split into two parts.I absolutely loved the first part of the book about Naaja growing up in the village, how she had to cope with people's prejudice and judgement towards her as well as her time away from the village in the small cottage (maybe it wasn't a cottage? I can't remember). It was great seeing how she grew as a person as the book went along. I loved the atmosphere of Greenland in the time this novel is supposed to be happening (15th century, I think it was) a [...]


    2. 945 besiedelten die Mannschaften von 14 isländischen Schiffen unter Führung Eriks des Roten Grönlands Westküste. Überreste mittelalterlicher Siedlungen bestätigen diese Überlieferung. 800 Jahre später konnten keine Nachkommen der "Bleichen" mehr in Grönland gefunden werden; Hungersnöte oder Piratenübefälle könnten Grund dafür sein."Die Winterfrau" spielt Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts. In Davídsdóttirs historischem Roman treffen Naaja, eine Inuit, die zweimal von ihrem Stamm verstoß [...]


    3. Heillandi söguleg skáldsaga eftir Vilborgu sem lýsir uppvexti inúítastúlkunnar Naaju sem glímir við andúð og erfiðar aðstæður í samfélaginu. Fyrri hluti sögunnar lýsir lífi hennar á meðal inúíta en sá síðari því þegar hún kynnist norrænum mönnum sem þá byggðu Grænland. Mér fannst fyrri hlutinn sérlega vel heppnaður þar sem siðir, trú og bönn skiptu miklu máli en í þeim síðari skoðar Vilborg nokkuð hvernig brokkgeng samskipti inúíta og norrænu [...]


    4. Þetta fannst mér æðisleg bók. Ævintýri fyrir fullorðna byggt á heimildum, mér fannst hlutirnir ljóslifandi og fekk vatn í munninn þegar ég söguhetjan borðaði sjóðheita lifrina úr bráðinni osfrv. Fyrri hlutinn skemmtilegri og einstaklega flottar og nákvæmar lýsingar á veiðiaðferðum og búnaði.Stefni að því að lesa allt eftir hana Vilborgu sem er núna í uppáhaldi.


    5. I couln't put it down. I loved reading about the Inuk's customs and their stories. I also liked the focus on the cultural differences. I thought the author's explanation of the disappearance of the nordic settlement in Greenland very interesting.


    6. Las þessa í framhaldi af Galdri sem mér fannst ekki eins góð og Hrafninn. Vilborg hefur greinilega sett sig vel inn í lífshætti Inúíta þannig að lesandinn fær góða innsýn í siði og samfélag þeirra. Bókin vann á og á tímabili gat ég ekki hætt að lesa - þó fannst mér endirinn frekar snubbóttur.
