Edvard Christiansen was only fifteen when he joined the Norwegian resistance. He took part in the Shetland Bus operation that helped people escape the Nazi occupation of Norway. Traumatised by his experiences, Edvard moved to Shetland after the war, and never returned home. Seventy years later, his grand-daughter, Lisa Balfour, is considering studying for a PhD, and has chosen the Shetland Bus for her research project. Lisa is desperate to capture her beloved Grandfather’s story before it’s too late. Edvard wants to help Lisa with her research, but finds it painful to talk about the past.

On a field trip to an uninhabited island Lisa finds a message in a bottle from a young Norwegian man, Joakim Haaland. Lisa is too busy to write back to Joakim, but one day she looks him up on Facebook, and unexpectedly finds a way to unlock her grandfather’s secrets, with surprising consequences.
