Book Description
In Raven, Stay by Me eleven-year-old Greenlander Inga Sigurdsdottir wakens on a cold and rocky coast after her Norse ship wrecks en route to “Vinland.” Her one comfort and companion is an injured raven she rescues. When she encounters Inuit hunters, both parties are terrified by the meeting. But when an exhausted Inga rescues a lost child, the girl’s mother insists that the stranded Inga be taken in.

As years pass, the raven becomes Inga’s guardian and comrade. Chance brings her into contact with a company of Norsemen, including her own uncle. Caught between the two cultures, she is compelled to choose between returning to Greenland with the Norse or staying with the Inuit.

Reviews: "I greatly enjoyed this touching love story. This historically authoritative and heart-warming tale lifts your imagination and brings to life what could indeed have been an actual scenario."
- Bernd Heinrich, Ph.D and author of Ravens in Winter

"I was immediately drawn to this deep, language rich, and insightful story after reading the first page. The author pulled me into a time and place that was unfamiliar to me, yet her expressive style created a clear picture of Inga, an eleven-year-old Greenland girl shipwrecked off a rocky northern coastline and the telling of her different experiences and difficult decisions she makes along the way; van Keuren does a superb job of weaving words and valuable lessons into this powerful tale about cultural identity, bravery, survival, and a special friendship--including no ordinary raven. A great choice for middle school or junior high level readers."
-Dr. Joan C. Fingon, Professor of Reading and Education, California State University, Los Angeles

About the Author
L.W. van Keuren is a writer of fiction and drama for children, often with a strong connection to history. Her story “Highland Gray,” winner of the Ralph Nading Hill Prize, concerns a famous 19th century racehorse whose name is still enshrined in slate on his barn roof. Her play 109 Hats to Bennington was commissioned by the state of Vermont for its bicentennial and was performed in many schools and every county, and on the floor of the state legislature. The Remarkable Christmas Package (Blooming Tree Books, 2004) was inspired by an account in a 1907 newspaper. Professor Emerita from California University of Pennsylvania, she taught literature and creative writing for many years before becoming a full-time writer. She received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Delaware and also studied abroad in Austria, Spain, and Ireland. She also is a graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music. The author makes her home in mid-coast Maine with six cats and flock of geese.
