Growing up in a strict protestant community Katelijne and her environment struggle to accept her love for stories and reading.
Young Katelijne grows up in a strict protestant peasant family. As the only girl among six brothers she is hardly involved with farm work and is continually left out of day-to-day conversations. So she lets her imagination run free by indulging in biblical stories, gossip and even fairy tales, although these are forbidden as they keep her away from the Truth. During her brother’s wedding, however, she literally overwhelms her family with literature, saying goodbye to her childhood.
