The Finland author’s written work never hindered my reading and was well-organized. The characters were interesting and the story’s theme focuses on parenting, childhood, sisterhood, relationships and heart-warming drama. The author even covered the dark family’s secrets and the dialogue between family members, past and present, reinforces the communication fallen upon this family over several years.
The story begins with the family moving from Finland to Stockholm with two young sisters telling their view points about the move. There’s a before move events and a lot of changes after the move. Than the story jumps thirty years to the future where Eeve, the younger daughter received news her grandmother dies and she has to travel back to Finland to her grandmother’s funeral and face some tragedies from the past.
From this point the scenario of the story happens in Finland. This is where the reader will acknowledge the events of the thirty year separation.
I like the change from childhood memories to adult interpretations of childhood events. It was not a sweet happy story. The divorce was not a happy event. The writer also kept me reading to discover the dark secrets of this family. The way family members were able to reconnect without forcing the main character to be apart of their new relationships reinforces communication. communicate ever after family tragedies such as divorce. I took a Finnish language class and I can see why the father was monolingual! Finnish could be a lifetime study.
