Aubrey (Korrick) | 1833 comments Floating in My Mother's Palm, Ursula Hegi, 1990, Germany (United States), NOVEL

"...Young Hanna tells of Hannelore Beier, whose crippled hands become a thing of beauty; of Hanna's mother, a woman who loves to paint and to swim in the quarry during lightning storms; and of Hanna's father, a dentist, whose only reckless act in life was to marry the woman he loved...Ursula Hegi's descriptions are as filled with light as Hanna's mother's paintings; her philosophical musings are quietly striking..."

(E.B., p. 126)
