This novel was easy to read in spite of the heaviness of the topic. Imagine being abandoned by your own mother and then, many years later, coming upon her. What would you say? How would you feel? Perhaps you would actually feel more love for her than she for you. A shocking revelation. I enjoyed this book and particularly liked the detailed descriptions of life in the north, where it is so very cold.
