Wonderful, wonderful story about two women, one young and one old, who meet in Sweden. Both deal with terrible tragedies they have not recovered from. Simple things and time together nurse them back to "health."
This is a very thought provoking novel. It tells the story of two very different women who have turned their backs on life for different reasons, but somehow they connect and create a beautiful permanent friendship in a very short time. It is heartwrenching, yet heartwarming at the same time. Beautifully written. Totally loved it! I couldn't put it down. I love that this version has an interview with the author, as well as discussion group questions at the back. Great!
Beautifully written, captivating novel about a surprising friendship that develops between 2 women who seem very different on the surface, but are actually quite alike.
This is one of the best "women as friends" books I've read. Don't miss it.
This was a lovely written story of two women who have lead totally different lives and have come together as friends. Beautifully written,this author has a great talent for describing everything that is being seen, heard, tasted and felt. The story itself was a bit on the slow side and it took me awhile to get through it despite the fact that it's only 246 pages, but it was a truly lovely story and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys descriptive, melancholy, and emotional stories.
