Vera is a nurse from Sweden who, while delivering a baby in the Colombian jungle, meets indigenous people who give her a wholly different outlook on life. A traumatic experience forces her home, where the quest to put her life back together  becomes tied up with her search for a more sustainable world. She meets the womanizing heir to a luxury travel company. Could such opposites really attract? And, could they actually work together to find a fix for an economic system heading toward meltdown. An exploration of the inter-connectedness of human life, and an unexpected love story, Integrity delves deep into the choices and emotions of a woman trying to change the world, and a man trying to change with her. Anna Borgeryd has a PhD in conflict management and is chair of the family business Polarbröd. She is a musician and film-maker and this, her first novel, started life as a screenplay which won several awards in Sweden. She has been an adviser to the Swedish government’s Future Commission. She has given a TEDx lecture on The Dawn of a New Economy and in 2014 she was named among the fifteen most influential environmentalists in Sweden. She blogs at Wood and Blue.

'A compelling novel that brings the big city picture of climate change, economic greed and runaway inequality down to a deeply personal level through the story of a relationship between a woman and a man'   Dr Vandana Shiva, environmentalist and author

'Borgeryd, who is both involved in a family business and one of Sweden’s leading environmentalists, began this Swedish cult classic as a screenplay. In its current form, the novel combines genres as a romantic comedy about changing direction in a self-destructive world.' - Ellie Rambo, World Literature Today 'I could not put Integrity down. All 500 pages held my interest and it is proving to be an amazing educational tool because of the parameters of a real love story between and man and a woman who are honest and smart. Great political truth telling... I loved the honesty of the student’s enthusiasm; the working through of their thinking, their process of gaining integrity in their relationships and in their presentations. No wonder this book is becoming a “Cult Novel” in Sweden and now here.' - Patricia's Wisdom 'This cult Swedish novel is a pleasure to read'  Amelia Bryne, 'The Da Vinci Code of relationship novels' Par Holmgren, author and meteorologist 'Integrity is a genre-bending novel that has achieved cult status in Sweden where Anna Borgeryd heads one of the country's most progressive companies. Exceptionally well written, as entertaining as it is thought-provoking, Integrity is very highly recommended...' - James A. Cox, Midwest Press Review.
