From Our Editors

Being mentally trapped is just as frightening as being physically trapped. The heroine of The Prowler seems trapped by both the history and the horizons of her native land. Growing up in Iceland during the post-war years, she immigrates to North America, hoping to permanently break the bonds that hold her. What she finds, however, is a widening mystery.
