Overview Adventskalenderen

During breakfast on a totally ordinary Tuesday, Fie's husband abruptly tells her that he wants a divorce and asks her to move out. He is a dentist, and for years Fie has, as well as being his wife, been his faithful assistant - without pay. Now she is banished to an impractical and uncharming attic apartment on the other side of the city. Dazed and in despair that her life has been turned up-side down, Fie tries to soften the blow with sedatives. Her grown-up son is embarrassed about his mother's breakdown and refuses to answer his phone.

Fie's sister Sara is the one who takes charge in the situation, demanding that Fie gets a grip. To speed things up, she gives Fie a challenging Christmas Calendar with new tasks every day leading up to Christmas, helping Fie find her footing in her new reality. And with this, despair turns into an adventurous ( and, at times, overwhelming) and pretty nice advent in the end!

The Christmas Calendar is a charming and touching Christmas book from the Norwegian queen of feelgood!
