Three Barrels of Barley
Lena, the mother of three small children, has inherited a farm near Grimstad on the southern coast of Norway. The property is worth a fortune, but an unsolved problem from the past overshadows it. Something is wrong, but she struggles to put her finger on what. The tooth of time has not yet gnawed away the pain that lies beneath the farm's grounds. Thus, Lena realizes that this old power is about to wake up again. An evil that extends to both her and those she loves.
In this novella, Tom Thowsen breathes new life into Terje Vigen, Henrik Ibsen's famous poem from 1861

About Tom Thowsen
If you enjoy books of Wilbur Smith and Ken Follett, you'd likely enjoy Tom Thowsen too. He is a Norwegian illustrator and fiction writer with a passion for history. This passion is also reflected in his books, where he often uses two different time frames, two different stories woven together. One from the present time and the other from the past.
His novels have received very good receptions from both readers and newspapers.
Halden Arbeiderblad said this about Kayaweta, his newest novel: "Thowsen manages to combine facts with fiction and writes excellent novels."
Another newspaper, Demokraten, concluded: "The author sparkles with the joy of storytelling and knowledge."
