It's one of the most beautiful and touching books I have ever read. Tunström perfoms magic by delicately touching you soul. His language slowly but surely goes under your skin until you are totally embraced, touching the very essence of your being. Divine is another word that springs to mine. Let it embrace you too. ENJOY!

A truly beatutiful story 18 Oct. 2000
By Sara Bergfors - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Ever wondered how your life would have turned out - if only... This is a story that will make you realise how our lives are a web of coincidences - or maybe it's faith? It's also a journey in time and space, set in beautiful surrondings in both in Sweden and New Zealand. It's a sad, wonderful and romantic, and yet never ever sentimental, story about a love larger than life, and what happens when a lovestory like that ends abruptly by a terrible accident.
Goran Tunstrom, who unfortunately died earlier this year, was following in the great tradition of Swedish storytellers like Selma Lagerlof and Vilhelm Moberg. Don't miss out!
