Overview Vår i det hinsidige
Spring and Beyond is a powerful novel about a young girl's awakening – to sexuality, growth and development, and sudden death. Spring is practising kissing. Experimenting with rubbing her body against the bark of a tree. She is unguarded in her experience of the world. Then death comes knocking, taking someone from her.

Is it possible to make contact with the dead? Where do they go? And who is God, really?

Spring looks for signs even as everything around her picks up speed, propelling her towards adulthood.

Reviews from Vår i det hinsidige

Jenter som går seg vill i følelser 11.11.2018

«Gine Cornelia Pedersens romanpersoner ender i galskap og taushet, men romanene handler i grunnen om hvordan du skal bli voksen. Pedersen kan skrive både direkte, malerisk og antydende ... Dypest sett handler dette forfatterskapet ikke bare om kjærlighet, død eller galskap, men om betingelsene for dannelse»Atle Christiansen, Aftenposten
«Gine Cornelia Pedersens nyeste roman, hennes tredje, kjennes forfriskende å lese. (...) et ungt forfatterskap preget av energi, rytme og driv.»Live Lundh, Vårt Land
