Summary

Inspired by the early life of Swedish artist Berta Hansson, a story of a girl who refuses to conform to the requirements of family and society.

Berta is a twelve-year-old girl growing up on a farm in a small village in northern Sweden in the early twentieth century. She loves drawing and painting more than anything else, and secretly dreams of being an artist.

But her mother is sick and Berta is needed on the farm. She knows that she needs art, that she has to express herself. But how can she make her dreams a reality?

NOTE : First published in 2017 in Swedish under the title "Faglen I mig flyger vart den vill".
