The Castle in the Pyreness is the story of Solrun and Steinn, a couple once desperatly in love, who were cast apart by a misterious event. Thirty years later they meet by chance, in a village deep in the mountains of Norway. It is a place that may hold the secret to their break-up, and to the peoplethey have since become.
As they return to their families, Solrun and Steinn embark upon a secret correspondence, and begin to question their current lives and loves. But as they realise that their years apart need not have been so, a figure from the past intrudes painfully on the present. And now it is more important than ever to answer two questions: Who was the Lingonberry Woman> And what did she want?
