Description:
Translated from the Norwegian.
Barry Island off the North-western coast of Norway - a holdfast for a single family, their livestock, their crops, their hopes and dreams. There is a taint passed down the Barry line, and Hans and Maria Barry fear their daughter Ingrid may be affected. The early years of the 20th century prove that Norway cannot stand apart from the wider world - no more than Barry island can remain at a remove from the rest of Norway. Hans Barry decides to build a quay so that his family can be connected to the mainland and with neighbouring islands. In time, Ingrid is sent to serve with one of the rich families on the coast, caring for their children. But when tragedy strikes - twice in quick succession - she finds herself responsible not only for two newly orphaned children, but for Barry Island itself. If they are to survive, she and the other young must learn how to tame this remote earthly paradise for themselves.
