Christine Falkenland returns with a darkly passionate novel about deception, the desires of the flesh and loneliness of the soul

Pastor Erland Wallerius’s harmonious existence is disturbed by an unannounced visit from Claudia, one of his peers from parochial school whom he hasn’t seen in years. But a darkness seems to envelope her, and she asks Erland to preside over her funeral.

Claudia rocks Erland's convictions and sets off the sexual desires he has long been surpressing in his marriage. Against his will he becomes entangled in a struggle between faith and doubt, sin and grace. Between body and soul. While Claudia’s dark grip on Erland grows ever stronger, old secrets comes to light that will change Erland's life irrevocably.

MY SOUL TO KEEP is a sensual novel about purity, goodness, evil and violent human desire by one of Sweden’s most critically-acclaimed author
