Overview

Born on the Norwegian island that bears her name, Ingrid Barroy's world is circumscribed by storm-scoured rocks and the moods of the sea by which her family lives and dies. But her father dreams of building a quay that will end their isolation, and her mother longs for the island of her youth, and the country faces its own sea change: the advent of a modern world, and all its unpredictability and violence. Brilliantly translated into English by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw, The Unseen is the first book in the Ingrid Barroy Trilogy and a profoundly moving exploration of family, resilience, and fate.
