Seven brief stories, told with humor and pathos, featuring Inga and Olaf Ingabretson (brother and sister) provide insight into moral dilemmas of daily living. While Inga and Olaf are fully human, there is an air of otherness about them too. The reader might see in them something more than a quaint old Norwegian brother and sister living in an ancient house haunted by the memories and relics of their father.
