Overview Berøringen

Deep in the woods, a woman is sitting by herself in a cabin. She's trying to write the story of her life, but memories of her past keep pushing their way in and leaving her lost for words. Instead, the woman heads out into the forest.

She takes long walks and is constantly drawn towards some burnt-out ruins on the outskirts of the little village. Who was the man who lived in this house? And what connection does his story have with hers?

The woman searches for answers, and slowly uncovers secrets that have long been buried. Britt Karin Larsen returns with a strong and engaging novel about yearning for closeness and belonging, about things that are kept hidden, and about the necessity of telling one's own story.
