August, waiting

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Another week and the new book will hit the stores here in Sweden. One early review so far, with the headline ‘Grief and Hope’:

In ‘Det goda inom dig’ Linda Olsson uses her freedom as an author to paint a sad yet hopeful story about a woman who, when she befriends an abused little Maori boy, is forced to confront her own memories from a childhood characterized by fear and abandonment. It is an exquisitely written and captivating story about the vulnerability of children and the responsibility of adults. Another theme is the courage to love and the courage to dare to ask why we love. The wonderful descriptions of of the New Zealand landscape, constantly with the sea as a backdrop, colour the the reading experience. Read this book in one sitting!
