really liked it
bookshelves: fiction
Read in February, 2009

Maybe this book is one that came at the right time for me, but I really really liked it and slowed down my reading so I would not finish it. It is about a friendship between a younger and an older woman in a small town in Sweden. They both are healing from events in their past. Each chapter begins with a line or two of poetry which I liked. I also liked the author's descriptions of light and of food.
The author is Swedish but now lives in New Zealand and the book is set in both places, but mostly in Sweden.
This is one book I will keep and perhaps read again.

Bonnie Sandie,
I am going to request your book at the library tomorrow. I have just finished "Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan. It is a fictional account of Frank Lloyd Wright's tempestuous affair with a married woman, Mamue, Well researched, well written and fascinating look at FLW. I am a great admirer of his architecture.

I have also finished a Henning Mankel book "The Fifth Woman" which I liked very much.
