The queen of the north

(Portuguese edition)

Being a foreigner in a far far away country isn’t easy.
Being happy for ever after isn’t easy either.

The queen of this story knew that. She was sad for so long that the king began to be seriously concerned. The king was used to command his troops and to fight enemies with his sword, but this time he had no one to fight with.
What was this illness that drained every strength from the queen? And how should he fight it?

Drawing inspiration from the portuguese Legend of the Almond Trees, Joana Estrela tells a story for all ages that involves loneliness, longing and sorrow. And what we must learn in order to move on.
