When Anna Harvik goes to Norway in 1946 this beautiful country is still recovering from five cruel years of Nazi Occupation. Her late husband was a pilot in the Royal Norwegian Air Force and she has come to visit his homeland and meet his family, in spite of being in doubt about how she will be received. She stays with Molly, who with other English war-brides makes her welcome. On her fist day a lawyer, Alex Ringstad, comes with what is virtually a command from her father-in-law that she accept ownership of an old house that has a unique history. In spite of many difficulties, she finds love and much more in the country that becomes her own.
