About the book

Within the Walls is a thrilling, haunting and beautiful novel about deceit, sorrow, escape and reconciliation.

In the French countryside of Normandy lies an ancient, mythical abbey with a library that attracts scholars from all over the world. Thanks to a scholarship, Sofi has gotten the chance to come there in order to write and in addition find peace. Behind, she leaves Sweden and a marital crisis with tragic consequences.

But she does not find the calm she is looking for. Like herself, the abbey carries a dark history and Sofi is soon plagued with visions and dreams about what happened here during the Second World War.

The fates of the soldiers are intertwined with her own until she no longer knows if what she experiences is real or not.

Who can she trust? Who is haunting her with whispers and knocks? Is she going insane or does someone want to hurt her?
