Summary/Review: "No-one can be alone on an island . . . But Ingrid is alone on Barrøy, the island that bears her name, and the war of her childhood has been replaced by a new, more terrible present: Norway is under the Nazi boot. When the bodies from a bombed battleship begin to wash up on the shore, Ingrid can’t know that one will be alive, and warm enough to erase a lifetime of loneliness—nor can she imagine what suffering she will endure in protecting her lover, and the subsequent journey she will face, wrenched from her island once more, to return home. Or that, in the midst of the horrors of battle, among refugees fleeing famine and scorched earth, she’ll be given a gift, the value of which is beyond measure. The highly anticipated follow-up to Roy Jacobsen's International Booker and Dublin Impac Award-shortlisted The Unseen, White Shadow is a vividly observed exploration of conflict, love, and human endurance."--
