The Realm of the Rain Children

Merethe Lindstrøm

Maria lives a shifting existence, always on the road and on the run, always the subject of accidental meetings and experiences along the way. An existence on the edge, where the journey is the goal and other people are useful stops. Until she one day travels home, to her mother: the moon mother. The novel is about a different mother-daughter relationship. About a generation wanting to live in the moment. About breaking away and fear of life itself. About Marie’s relationship to Michael, who came to a bad end, and about Marie’s search for a new, steady point in her existence.
