Cecil Bødker paints a brilliant portrait of Malvina's journey from abused and speechless child-woman, nurtured by the love and care of inhabitants of The Water Farm, to the lion-hearted champion of other abused and speechless girls and women. Four years ago, Malvina left her home village in shame, penury, and despair. Thanks to the motley collection of outsiders who beacme her family, she returns to set things right. The Water Farm Trilogy is set in 19th century Denmark, but the class and gender discrimination are all too familiar. The final book in the Water Farm series. Translated by Michael Goldman.
