Stāsts par dzemdību nodaļas pacientēm, viņu cerībām un iznākumiem.
Biju gaidījusi pavisam ko citu. Romānā ir pārāk daudz varoņu, kuru likteņi un raksturi atklāti vien pavirši. Lasot, nespēju tā īsti pieķerties nevienai no varonēm, nepaspēju nevienu iepazīt. Autore sniedz domu/jūtu fragmentus, ko savilkt kopējā ainā ir ļoti grūti.
Taču vispārsteidzošākais man likās beigas, jo atrisinājumu kā tādu tā arī nesaredzēju - aprauts pusvārdā.

It's been awhile since I've read a feminist novel and I found Winter's Child to be particularly refreshing.

Didn't need that! Smukt sprog, men jeg er bestemt større fan af hendes andre romaner. Måske fordi jeg endnu ikke har børn og hele underl...more

Falleg bók, fallega skrifuð og fallega myndskreytt. Full af hlýju og einhverju mjúku dönsku átakaleysi sem . Las þessa bók fyrir tvítugt og elskaði þennan kvennaheim (minn heim) sem var svo fáséður í bókmenntunum.
