The Sixteen Trees of The Somme by Lars Mytting


This is a book about finding yourself; a captivating tale of adventure and an intriguing personal quest. And, as you would expect from the best-selling author of Norwegian Wood, it’s also about trees and the love of wood. It starts with a mysterious coffin, exquisitely crafted out of flame-birch wood. But the man who made it is supposed to be dead….

Edvard sets out to discover the long-concealed secret of his family, which takes him on a long journey – from Norway to the Shetlands, and finally to the battlefields of France – to the discovery of a very unusual inheritance.
