About the book
Kajsa and Bastien are fed up with the humdrum life in the city and when they come across an ad for a house rental in the countryside, they decide to take the leap. They envision growing vegetables, building furniture in the little sawmill and looking after the two old horses that the landlady has left behind. Perhaps the change of scenery will also help mend the cracks in their relationship…
But life in the country turns out to be more challenging than they expected. The horses, as well as the bees in the hives, are prone to escaping, the barn is falling apart, the cabbage worms are helping themselves to the vegetable patch and their closest neighbour Per-Arne seems unable to mind his own business. And to make matters worse, there is someone from their past that Kajsa appears to be hiding from.
A House in the Country is the new novel by feelgood favourite Karin Janson. An entertaining page-turner about the romantic image of the countryside, equally light-hearted and sincere.
