Two Women: A Novel of Friendship
Synopses & Reviews
With her acclaimed novels Hanna's Daughters and Simon's Family, international bestselling author Marianne Fredriksson captivated readers with the extraordinary power of her emotional landscapes. Now Fredriksson gives us Two Women, the unforgettable story of a remarkable friendship-and the secrets that threaten to tear it apart.
They meet on a spring day in the local garden center: Inge, a native Swede, lovely and refined, a woman ruled by reason and her own deeply held moral beliefs; and Mira, a Chilean immigrant who still feels out of place in the cold Scandinavian north. Through many shared afternoons in Inge's garden, Mira slowly reveals the horrors of a shadowed past and the heartbreak involving her beloved daughter. As Mira and her family begin a wrenching journey of discovery, Inge unwittingly uncovers secrets in her own life that make her question the very order of her world. An elegant novel of time and memory, love and distance, and the wounds they create and conceal, Two Women is Marianne Fredriksson's most affecting work of fiction to date.
Now in paperback comes "Two Women, " a novel about the healing power of friendship--and family--from the author of the international bestseller "Hanna's Daughters."
