    "First published by Albert Bonniers Förlag, Stockholm, Sweden"--T.p. verso.
    When Hillevi, a young, inexperienced midwife, moves from the university town of Uppsala to the wilderness of Svartvattnet (Blackwater) to be with her unofficial fiancé, she is ill prepared for what awaits her. In this frigid, austere, and isolated territory, she encounters the overwhelming and unpredictable forces of nature and demoralizing poverty and ignorance while also gaining access to the unfamiliar world of nomadic Sami reindeer herders. A single traumatic event, never fully confronted, has devastating and far-reaching repercussions, but Hillevi also finds unexpected warmth and love. Incorporating elements of the yoik oral tradition of Sami culture, God's Mercy is a story about the capriciousness of memory, the resilience of the human psyche, and the endless wonder of the wild.
