Een verhaal waarin je in verzinkt, een vreemde wereld die omarmt. Losse en verloren eindjes vinden mekaar. Niet alles eindigt in harmonie en schoonheid, mededogen legt er een warm dekentje over. Een absolute topper van Ann Patchett!

Hartverwarmend verhaal, met ietwat eigenzinnige personages. Dompel je onder in het winterse Boston en omarm het verhaal.
