Biologist, more precisely seed collector from endangered areas, Gloria Suton (Suton meaning twilight) comes to visit her father in Split between two assignments. This visit will inevitably be a return to her father's hometown of Vrj, the hamlet of Sutoni, somewhere in Dalmatian zagora, near Cetina. There she meets Jadran, a childhood friend, his daughter Alta, some invasive species, but also the task of transplanting a tree.

All of Gloria's attempts to live even for a moment in the present will be overwhelmed by the ivy of memory and her deep-rooted ties to her past life. And that life whips us from these pages with experiences and feelings as dense and fragrant as the Dalmatian vegetation: seductive, prickly, sticky, and ultimately, under the heat of the sun, sprouting on their own.

This is a novel about families and relationships, about unresolved issues and about what it means to forgive and move on. How inextricable are one’s identity and the history of a family?

The Land Without Twilight, Marija Andrijašević’s debut novel, seems to be made of the fragrant resin of a Mediterranean tree, which heals the wound of the family tree of the Suton family and sticks to the readers.
