Astrid and Veronika - Linda Olsson A beautiful, wonderfully written story about two women; one at the beginning of her life, the other at the end of her life, who meet and because of this discover hope and love again. This book is written in such a way that I want to go back and copy parts of it; so poetic and grand.I recommend this book for anyone who has felt a loss and the accompanying hopelessness that goes along with it. It may just provide you with the spark of hope you needed or the breath of love that was always there. Five stars to this book which immediately is going on my list of favorites!
