When the search for home turns into a search for yourself…
DIE FARBE DES NORDWINDS
(The Colour of the North Wind)
by Klara Jahn
Heyne/PRH Germany, March 2021
Ellen has always felt like a visitor in her own life. Except once, when she was young and briefly lived on the Halligen islands with her mother. She never wanted to leave, but had no say in the matter. Now she returns to these oddly familiar marshes – and to Liske, who once was like a sister to her. As they grow closer, old conflicts are stirred up again; but Ellen refuses to give up. Because she knows that this is her true home. For readers of Delia Owens’ Where the Crawdads Sing.
