About the book
Irwan Droog did what most people only dream of: he left the hustle and bustle of a Dutch city to live with his girlfriend and dog on a tiny, remote island in Norway.
Surrounded by flocks of migratory birds and stray sheep, he watches the seasons come and go, observing the northern lights to the midnight sun. In his spare time, he delves into the history of the island and its residents. He meets the fisherman Jim, who loves nothing more than going out to sea every day; Eivind, who takes care of the eider ducks every spring; and Heidi, who found love on the island and never wants to leave.
