About this title


Dagmar's Daughter follows three generations of passionate and powerful women.

Norea Nolan emerges from the destitute Irish village of her upbringing by stealing the boots from her mother's coffin, walking to Dublin, and stowing herself on a ship bound for a remote island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Norea's daughter, Dagmar, is born with an uncanny ability to control the weather and a remarkable gift for gardening. As she develops into a striking woman she is wooed and won by Colin Cane, a musician who loves her fiercely, but is unfaithful.

Dagmar's daughter Nyssa is as musically brilliant as her father and as struck with wanderlust. She runs off with one of her father's oldest friends, a musician who has returned to the island after a long self-imposed exile, and loses herself in his dark world. Dagmar is undone by her daughter's disappearance and her wrath invokes an icy rain, which envelops the landscape in a thick layer of ice.

Mystical, seductive, and brimming with music and magic, Dagmar's Daughter draws upon the ancient myths of Inanna, conqueror of the underworld, and Demeter's search for Persephone, her lost daughter.
