What a sad, sad, happy, wonderful exchange of letters, of friendship, of love.
It touched me on so many levels. In the end, I feel as though I know those two like friends. Astrid Lindgren, but even more Louise Hartung, the woman who seemed to have doubted whether people would ever remember her. For what it's worth, I know she lived, and I admire her courage, her hope, the way she lived such an independent life.
i have read so many wonderful books in my life, so many that have touched me deeply, but nothing has ever touched me so deeply and thoroughly than this book. i cant express fully how much this meant and still means and will forever mean to me.

2 special intelligent advanced women talk about their lifes, thoughts and relationship. One survived WW2 in Berlin and became an important person in education and denazification. the other is the worlds most famous author for children books. It's cool to get to know the situations in which astrid writes her stories. Also the 2 have a very special relationship which questions the meaning of love and friendship.
