for The Crow-Girl: The Children of Crow Cove by Bodil Bredsdorff, translated from the Danish by Faith Ingwersen
Winner Blurb: 

“The Crow-Girl,” by Bodil Bredsdorff, was translated into English by Faith Ingwersen.  The book was originally published in Danish in 1993 as “Krageungen:  Børnene i Kragevig 1.” In this spare yet moving novel, the Crow-Girl and her grandmother live in a stone house on a sea cove.  After her grandmother dies, the child follows the beckoning cries of two crows and leaves her home.  While on her journey, the Crow-Girl encounters people who attempt to break her spirit, as well as those who open their hearts and eventually become her chosen family.
