The fourth installment in Roy Jacobsen's bestselling Barr y Chronicles.

After a long journey through Norway, Ingrid has returned to Barr y, the island that bears her family name. The Second World War still casts its long shadow: former collaborators face cold shoulders, while others wish to leave the painful years in the past. When a boy arrives on the island, Ingrid assumes responsibility for him, and so he joins the Barr y community, raised alongside Ingrid's own daughter, another child of war.

As letters from distant friends arrive with news of a society undergoing dramatic changes, Ingrid must decide which stories to keep to herself, and which she should she bring to light. What kind of future does she imagine--for herself, and for the children?
