Marianne Ihlen was 23 years old when she arrived on the Greek island of Hydra. Axel and Marianne buy a small white washed house where Axel Jensen amongst other stories writes his novel Line. After a couple of years Axel leaves the island, Marianne and their six months little son, for another woman. One day Marianne was in the village shop with her basket waiting to pick up bottled water and milk, a dark man is standing in the doorway with the sun behind him. He calls her the most beautiful woman he has ever met. Cohen drives her home from Greece to Oslo.

In March , Cohen, a law school dropout and budding poet, left dismal London for the sunny paradise of Hydra, Greece.
