This book by Linda Olsson has been on my reading list for so long that I had no memory of what it might be about when I at last got to it. I am so glad I finally read this gem. Olsson (her website is here) is a lyrical writer; she takes time about this craft of writing, creating phrases that fit together like poetry.Neighbors Astrid and Veronika are both lonely, heartbroken. Astrid obeyed her father and entered a loveless marriage. Veronika, a 30-year-old writer from New Zealand, rents a house near Astrid’s home. Astrid watches the young woman move in and continues to observe her comings and goings for some time. They meet each other one day and a very intimate, lovely friendship ensues. Yay!
