The End of The Ocean by Maja Lunde is a timely novel about the effects of climate change. The novel has two storylines, one in 2017 and one in 2041. In 2017, we meet Signe, an older woman who is concerned with an industry causing damage to the glaciers in her hometown in Norway. In 2041, we meet David who is a climate change refugee. David and his young daughter, Lou, fled a devastating fire and lost contact with his wife and son. The novel describes David and Lou's time in a refugee camp and Signe's journey on the ocean in her beloved boat, Blue.

This novel is incredibly powerful and a reminder of the devastating effects that climate change will have if we do not take action soon. It is also a novel full of hope, as Lou and David never give up hope that the rain will return.
