Medlemmers vurdering

E
Elisabeth – 06.04.2009

– Boka har stått i bokhylla mi en god stund nå, men ikke før denne våren skulle jeg ta den fram. Overraskelsen ble stor, for dette var en bok som var vanskelig å legge fra seg. Det er en familiekrønike som spenner over tre genereasjoner, og boken er komponert slik at vi blir kjent med alle tre generasjonene samtidig. Det er hele tiden hint om hva som vil skje. Callie, bokens hovedperson i nåtiden, vet at noe ikke stemmer. Hun er ikke som alle andre - forfedrenes synder kommer til syne i sine ledd - blir sentralt i denne boka. En roman jeg vi anbefale på det varmeste.
