Chrissie Laura, I saw that the author has come out with another book, but I still haven't read In the Wake. I have to read that first! He lost several in his family in the sinking. I am sure he has written a noteworthy book zbout this. I loved To Siberia, even more than Out Stealing Horses.

Laura I also love Out Stealing Horses Chrisse!!

Chrissie Laura, I loved Out Stealing Horses b/c when the kids were small we would spend summers in Dalarna and this is exactly the small village and country life depicted in the book. I also like the historical connection. Nevertheless In Siberia was superb, even better. I assume he will poignantly describe the sinking of the Estonia in In the Wake: A Novel because he was personally affected by this horrible event! However, I Curse the River of Time seems to focus on such a depressing subject...., but iIn a good author's hands any "story" is worth reading. I suppose I should read all of them!

Laura Chrissie, I forgot you lived in Sweden before but I've never been in Dalarna, I just spent 4 years in Stockholm without traveling so much. As soon as I get this book, I will let you know my feelings about it.
