    The Red Bird

    2003 Marit Törnqvist

    The winter has seldom been colder and the spring never more beautiful than here. With masterly skill, Marit Törnqvist has depicted the story of the poor orphans’ struggle for survival, working for the farmer in Myra, and the meeting with the red bird which shows them the way to flowering cherries and green meadows and a mother calling out, “Come, all my children”.
