It is midsummer in Norway. A long-divorced couple, Johan and Judith, meet one another again in the wake of a family tragedy. Finally they are forced to confront what went wrong in their relationship and the effect it has had on those around them. In the extraordinary psychological drama that follows, Johan and Judith plumb the very depths of sorrow and despair, before emerging with a new understanding. This novel, which draws on the myth of Persephone and on Mozart's The Magic Flute, not only deals with loss and grief, but also - transformingly - with hope, recovery, and love.
