Nachdem die isländische Lehrerin reiehenweise Herzen gebrochen hat und einer ihrer verheirateten Liebhaber einen Tag nach ihrem Geburtstag ins Wasser geht, verliebt sie sich in einen (verheirateten) Kollegen, der sich nach 100 Tagen von ihr trennt. Zeit ihres Lebens - über den Tod ihrer Schwester Alma und bis zu ihrem eigenen - kann sie ihn jedoch nicht vergessen, schreibt ihm (fiktive?!)

Ikke imponeret, kan meget bedre lide hendes andre bøger.
Rodet, laaangtrukken, forvirrende og hovedpersonen gentager sig selv/går i tomgang i 70-80% af romanen. Og man er vel hverken pensionist eller gamling som 44 årig???
Må indrømme at jeg blev meget skuffet/irriteret, da jeg normalt holder meget af Steinunn Sigurðardóttirs romaner.

This book is not badly written. It's actually quite good. It just has three stars because I didn't like the main character but that was mostly due to my own personal quirks. I'd still recommend it to a friend.
