This was a book club choice. I thought it was an interesting look at relationships and struggles of a hard life. Personally, I found it to be a slow moving story.

Beautifully written book chronicling the lives of three women, beginning in the 19th century Sweden. First the grandmother, then the daughter, then the grandaughter. Each section is in the voice of the woman telling the story, some in first person, some in third. The story itself was touching and emotional.

Wonderful story of several generations of a Scandinavian family. All very different women whose stories really draw you in.

100 years of Scandinavian history. One thing that always amazes me about books like this is how much can change in the world from the time a grandmother is born til her grandchild is born.

Loved this book! Lots of interesting cultural information and was just a good book about 3 generations of Norweigan women.
