A lot of background in Swedish politics which was likely necessary, but dragged. It was exciting with a good ending, though. I'd recommend it.

Description: “If Dad finds out about this, he’ll go crazy. If he goes crazy, he’ll end up in the nuthouse and we’ll all starve to death.” That was how Selma forced the cooperation of her youngest daughter, called Diana in the book. They were folks who didn’t fear the law; they feared confinement in a state asylum. “I’ll get you sent to the nuthouse” was a greater threat than “I’ll kill you.” Selma was an old-fashioned misfit like her own mother. When she tried to force those values on her creative daughter, the results were predictably explosive. Selma retaliated by excusing, and even encouraging, violence toward her daughter from a much larger brother. But Diana rarely wasted time with self-pity. Although she was groped by a stranger her mother let into the house, and a drunken uncle, she never felt molested. Although her skull was broken by her brother, she never felt like a victim. Although she accidently saw her father slaughter her pet calf, she never hated her father. There was too much fun to be had playing with cats, dogs, calves, and a neighborhood girl who possessed everything her heart desired (Diana was very poor). She even liked school. There is violence in this book. It was a poor farm, and dogs that should never have been born suffered the most. There was the shocking drowning of a child. There was old Grandma the murderess. And there was explicit animal sex. But a child lived through it, so older children should be able to read it, along with adults.
