Charlotte Löwensköld is only a distant relation to the Löwensköld family whose name the first volume of this trilogy bears. But her fate is firmly intertwined with theirs, and the reader comes to love her as dearly as do some of the characters. A heartrending and spine-tingling story of the twists and turns of life, then as now.
This middle volume of the Löwensköld trilogy moves forward in time. It is a tale of great psychological insight and social commentary, one of the main themes being the mother-son relationship. The language is beautiful, the content often tongue in cheek, and the impact tremendous.
