Overview Det andre barnet
Single mother Agnes prays to God for a man and chooses to move in with a single father at her son's preschool who winks at her and owns a white house in the countryside in Vestfold. Why do so many women make bad choices? What do you need in order to trust yourself and make conscious choices? And are you allowed to set limits for a child you don't love? A very engaging and relevant novel.

Strong novel about responsibility and self-knowledge in a distraught stepmother.
Line Nyborg has written a strong novel about feeling inadequate in the every day life. The Other Child is a good novel that must have been painful to write, because Line Nyborg is consequent and non-compromising. She does not steer around the hard topics. The book is also full of characters that she through just a couple of sentences put to life. It is well done, and shows an unusual talent.

Reviews from Det andre barnet

Sterk roman om ansvar og sjølvinnsikt hjå ei opprådd stemor.

Line Nyborg har skrive ein sterk roman om å kjenna seg utilstrekkeleg i kvardagssituasjonen. (...) Det andre barnet er ein god roman som det må ha vore vondt å skriva, for Line Nyborg er konsekvent og kompromisslaus, og går ikkje utanom det vanskelege. Boka har dessutan mange bipersonar som ho får fullt liv i med eit par setningar, det er godt gjort og vitnar om eit uvanleg talent.Odd W. Surén, Dag og Tid
