The Girl in the Snow is the beginning of a series set at the Sommersholm manor in the 1800s.
Sommersholm is a venerable manor that has belonged to the Adler family for generations. Two young women with very different lives live there: the landowner's daughter, Rose, and Alise, a maid. Alise's grandmother got to know the Adler family's darkest secrets as a young chambermaid at Sommersholm. Until the day she died, she never revealed to anyone what she saw and heard. But the secrets did not follow her to the grave.
After three years in Australia, the heir of Sommersholm, Birkthorn Adler, returns home to Norway. He went there against his father's will, and three years of separation have not dampened the strife between father and son. When he left, Alise was a young girl, but she has not forgotten the landowner's son who saved her life on a freezing cold winter night many years ago.
