"Marion Flint, in her early fifties, has spent fifteen years living a quiet life on the rugged coast of New Zealand, a life that allows the door to her past to remain firmly shut. But a chance meeting with a young boy, Ika, and her desire to help him force Marion to open the Pandora's box of her memory. Olsson expertly interweaves scenes from Marion's past with her quest to save Ika from his own tragic childhood, and renders with reflective tenderness the fragility of memory and the healing power of the heart."--Provided by publisher.

a moving story of reconciliation and healing. I disagree with the Publishers Weekly assessment of the author's prose on this website. I thoroughly enjoyed Olsson's writing.
