Discover a moving tale of isolation and the painful loss of innocence.

**NOW AN INTERNATIONAL AWARD-WINNING FILM**


In 1948, when he is fifteen, Trond spends a summer in the country with his father. The events - the accidental death of a child, his best friend's feelings of guilt and eventual disappearance, his father's decision to leave the family for another woman - will change his life forever.

As a 67-year-old man, and following the death of his wife, Trond has moved to an isolated part of Norway to live in solitude. But a chance encounter with a character from the fateful summer of 1948 brings the painful memories of that year flooding back and will leave Trond even more convinced of his decision to end his days alone.

'One of Norway's finest living writers' Independent

'Deeply atmospheric...a stunning novel' Daily Telegraph
