really liked it
bookshelves: contemporary-fiction, scandinavia-theme-setting
Read in December, 2008

This was more a novella- a finish it in one sitting sort of read. It slim size and spare style belie a great depth, however. I am also estranged from my mother; though our histories are very different, I could relate Clarissa's rage, antipathy, guarding of her heart and her rejection of the central characters in her immediate past. The ending was satisfying- closure followed by opening; an ending greeted with a beginning. Good stuff, this.

Margaret Reading the description here, I would have thought this would be an epic. Surprised it is so short. I'll check it out.

Julie Here is where I admit I barely remember this book. I just recall liking the heck out of it, grooving on Vida's style. . .
