This haunting and lyrical story reveals how the friendship between two women, one young and one old, helps each of them navigate from the depths of grief back into the joy of life.

Two ‘motherless’ women, generations apart, become neighbors near a small Swedish village. The year that ensues will change both their lives as they both learn to share hidden aspects of their lives—one long, another just starting with some bumps to overcome. This poetic and elegiac book uses the seasons as one of its gently unfolding themes to examine the ‘why do we live as we do’ question. You’ll love Astrid and Veronika, wishing you lived next door, too.

An emotional story of an unexpected friendship, one a young writer recovering from a recent tragedy and the other an elderly reclusive neighbor. The story gives us a glimpse of life in a quaint Swedish village, and the power of unusual friendships.
