Jessica Koch lives near the city of Stuttgart with her husband, their son, and two dogs. The second and third books in the tr

“Ein Schiff, das im Hafen liegt, ist sicher, aber dafür sind Schiffe nicht gemacht. Das Gleiche gilt übrigends für Menschen. [...] Auch wir fühlen uns am sichersten, wenn wir allein zu Hause bleiben und alle Gefahren von uns fernhalten. Am besten auch alle anderen Menschen, um nicht verletzt oder enttäuscht zu werden. [...] Aber dafür sind Menschen eben auch nicht gemacht. Genauso wie ein Schiff im Hafen von Salz und Algen zerfressen wird, passiert das beim Menschen mit Einsamkeit und Angst.”
Jessica Koch, Wenn das Meer leuchtet
