This is a tintillating story about a lonely derilict
and a girl who lives with her quiet and ruined mother who is involved in her
own loveless daily life, and her foster father who abuses her sexually. The
story is set in Northern Norway in the 1950s. While it centres around Tora the
storyline also incorporates a larger context.
The book is a depiction of the small town society in
which Tora grows up. The war has recently ended and Tora is a war child - her
biological father is German. She and her mother are both victims of the war. In
addition to this terrible predicament her foster father rapes her. How can Tora
evolve under such circumstances? Which path does she find to escape this
lifeless and terrible situation?
When we are introduced to Tora she is in the delicate
period of adolescence, in the transition from girl to woman.
