Hanna's Daughters

by Marianne Fredriksson

A story of three generations of women. The youngest, Anna, is trying to discover her past and how it has influenced her life. I found the descriptions of life in nineteenth century Sweden more interesting than the mother/daughter relationships!


She was troubled by the lack of furniture in the house, and the rugs and towels and all the other things she didn't possess. She gave not a thought to the man with whom she was to share her bed and life.
