Bara ein mamma

Roy Jacobsen

After the long journey, Ingrid has returned to Barrøy. Life appears to be normal, but the war has cast long shadows across the land. Traitors must pay while others simply want to forget.

One day, a five-year-old boy arrives to the island and meets Ingrid and her daughter, Kaia. Shortly after, the father of the boy disappears under mysterious circumstances, and Ingrid assumes responsibility for the boy. But there is something about Mattias, the young boy, who subsequently becomes an important part of the community of Barrøy.

BARA EIN MAMMA (Just a Mother) is the fourth book in a story that has delighted hundreds of thousands of people in Norway and internationally. The book series about Ingrid Barrøy, which begins with TEY ÓSJÓNLIGU (The Unseen) and continues in HVÍTT HAV (White Ocean) and EYGUNI Í RIGEL (The Eyes of the Rigel), is a story for anyone wanting to learn more about Norway.

BARA EIN MAMMA (Just a Mother) is novel in which an unusual woman is the main character. It is a story about responsibility, about being a parent, and about not noticing elements of our past that are right beside us.
