38. A House by the Fjord
By Rosalind Laker
Rated 3.5 Stars
This is not a very well written book. I could swear I have read this author before but when I looked at her bibliography I did not recognize anything. If I was rating this book on writing style alone I would have only given this book 2 stars. However I learned a lot of interesting stuff about Norway that I didn't know before. It's a shame this author is not a better writer because this could have been a 5 star read for me. Oh well . . . .
When Anna Harvik travels to Norway in 1946 in order to visit the family of her late husband, the country is only just recovering from five cruel years of Nazi occupation. So it is with surprise that she finds in this cold and bitter country the capacity for new love and perhaps even a new home.
