Miriam at Night

Maria Nygren

Highly acclaimed author Maria Nygren is back with an identity thriller that will give you goose bumps.
Nineteen –year- old Miriam comes to Uppsala to study theology. She is searching for something more than the stagnant life she has just left.
One night she sees a girl jump in the river. Miriam plunges in after her and brings her up to the surface. Her name is Sofia and she survives but ends up in a coma. Sofia is everything Miriam would like to be: beautiful, unpredictable and with the world at her feet.
In Sofia’s bag Miriam finds a notebook and from the moment she starts to read it she is captivated. It is impossible to stop
reading. She worms her way into Sofia’s life, into her family—with the secretive mother and charismatic brother— and pretends to have been her friend.
Soon the lies become a finely woven web, impossible to escape from. What happens when, or if, Sofia wakes up?
Miriam at Night is a suggestive identity thriller about dreams of changing one’s skin and leaving one’s own self behind—becoming something great and fantastic. Someone in fact, worth loving.
