We meet a girl living with foster parents. She doesn't understand why her mother didn't want her. In her adulthood, she starts looking for answers to her questions, both in order to understand her own outsider status and to give her daughter a beginning. This is a strong novel about how loss can open up other possibilities, other adventures. But perhaps you shouldn't find the answers to everything? Do you lose something if you aren't longing for something?
«Beautiful and restrained»
«Tender and beautiful about rootlessness»
«Britt Karin Larsen moves in a well known landscape in this little novel about lonely children and other unhappy destinies (…) well done, nicely paced and efficient. Not least she creates a believable narrator out of the main character Anni.»
