Beautifully written book chronicling the lives of three women, beginning in the 19th century Sweden. First the grandmother, then the daughter, then the grandaughter. Each section is in the voice of the woman telling the story, some in first person, some in third. The story itself was touching and emotional.
It starts a bit slow but if you keep reading it gets better and the closer you get to finishing it, you don't want it to end. Overall it was an okay book, a book I'm glad I read but probably won't read again and again.
Beautiful story about three generations of women in a family. It is wonderfuly written, one that will draw you in. If you like family, generation differences and stories of love, faith, and hope you will find it hard to put this book down. You will see each woman as a different person, and then as almost the same as they grow older, Each have loved, hated are restless, cry and care for their families. Very touching story.
I didn't want it to end:( I was touched by their story...
