About the book
Jan has lived alone for years since the sudden deaths of his parents. The heir to a beautiful farm close to the North Sea, he cannot escape the loneliness that awaits him each day when the farm work is done. He decides to place a personal ad. He’s searching for a woman for conversation, for sex, and – if he’s lucky – even for love and a child. The woman who answers, however, has plans of her own. She wants nothing more than a simple life in a quiet place close the sea. For her, Jan’s farm offers an escape from the busy city and from a reckoning with her past. And when she discovers that she can see the sea from the farmhouse loft, she makes up her mind to live there – to live there no matter what.
