"Restless and unable to sleep, Anna picks up a sepia photograph of her grandmother, Hanna, as a young woman. It is looking in a mirror and Anna ses not the tetchy old woman of family stories but a woman who might love, cry, hate, just as she does. For the first time Anna sees herself and herself, Hannas daughter, not just as a family, but as real people whose lives have rich and complex stories to tell."

When I read this book I realised that I never knew my mother as a person, only as my mother. I began to think more about inherited patterns and all the things I avoided to do in protest *L* (never grew up *L*....)

I like the book very well and I have chosen it to be my 60th birthdaybookring-book.
I hope you will enjoy it and wish you very happy reading!

This book came here today. A really fun bookring-thing to do for your 60th birthday, stormon!
I do my best to help getting this book around as quick as possible, so I will start reading it tonight and it will be sent to the next person on the list in a week. 


Journal Entry 4 by Alvhyttan from Nora, Västmanland Sweden on Sunday, January 08, 2006

9 out of 10

I had a great time, rereading this book in English and I had to take down my Swedish copy from the bookshelf and compare the text in some parts.
For me this is a novel about the history of my country, from ca 1880 when most people here in Sweden lived on small farms and had a really tuff time (many emigrated to USA), through the industrialization period when people moved to the towns and on to our days of life.
But most of all, it’s a book about the history of woman during this time.
It is also about what we inherit, not so much about the sofa (the sofa in the story is like a symbol); it’s more about the social and psychological heritage and about how this affects our family relations.

I hope everyone in this ring will enjoy this book!

I have made a note in the little notebook and tomorrow I will send this book to Panzeranzi .
And, of course, I will send a postcard to stormon.

Have fun stormon! Wishing you a lot of beautiful postcards with nice stamps and a very
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy birthday toooo yooouuuuu! I'm looking forward to participate in this bookjourney! It´s a lovely idea! I´ve started to read the book already and it's a bit odd reading a Swedish book in English, but interesting too. I think i might get a new perspective of the story. I read the book long ago and honestly don't remember it that well. I'll try to speed up my reading so the book continues its' journey soon! 


Journal Entry 6 by Panzeranzi from Göteborg, Västergötland Sweden on Wednesday, January 18, 2006

I'm sorry to say that I'm a bit disappointed in rereading this book. I don't know if it's because I find it hard to read a Swedish book translated into English or because of the story itself. Although Fredriksson tends to write about interesting subjects I think she doesn't really deal with the subject. As soon as she gets near to getting into something that matters she glides over it. I think it would have been a better story if she had written more about each person - perhaps even a series of books.

But I do find it to be a great story as far as it comes to Swedish history and the situation for women from the 1860's and onwards. I also think that it is important to shed some light to the fact that parents are individuals with a certain history that explains their actions. I agree with stormon that I realized that I don't really know my parents, which is a bit sad.

I'll send this to Kaleidoblikk as soon as possible! And once more.....Happy Birthday to Youuuuu!!!

HIPP HURRA FOR STORMON!!

What a nice surprise! I was on my way home from work; fell with my bicycle on the ice, aching all over the body and felt really sorry for myself. But when I came home there was a packet for me from Sweden!! Guess who forgot all about the pain - just like a child?

This book and a lovely card from Panzeranzi with an adoring selfmade bookmark enclosed!!
Tusen hjertelig takk!!
Will write more when I have read the book.

Thanx a lot for letting me join this bookring, stormon!!
A HUGE HUG FROM ME!!

I feel as if I could talk for hours about this book! And I quite agree with the words written on the back of the cover; that the stories will linger long after one has finished reading it. But when it comes to writing my thoughts in english, I dread I will not do the book justice. Therefore; bare over with me, please! I will try to express myself in general terms and not reveal anything that may spoil for the next readers.

Truly enjoyed getting to know these people!!
I find that Marianne Fredriksson managed to develope the story, not to mention stories(!), the way we get to know people in real life: little by little we see/hear/experience/and so on things that when summed up it becomes our impression of that person. When I believed that I knew and understood someone, Fredriksson revieled new things that in some cases made my impression stronger - and other times it made me see the person in a quite different light. It really made me empathise with each character, and that always make me admire the writer. Coming from a family where we often talk about our roots, I fully understand the effort put in getting to know ones anchestors.
The way the the writer mix between being an "I-person" and a "all-knower"(/"storyteller"), made the book true to me. It was as if these lives were lived ones, telling us about each person both from within themselves and also set in a sosial context.

Yesterday I recieved a letter from Panzeranzi with a postcard from where Johanna worked. She asked me to put it in the book, which I have done. Very nice of her!

Sending it to notnot today!!

I just want to add for those "in line": ENJOY!!

This wonderful book was waiting for me when I got home. I couldn't resist the temptation and had to start reading immediately. The story is really catching, already from the first pages. I don't think Hanna's Daughters will stay with me for a long time, because the story is really captivating, and I will probably finish it in almost no-time.
Thanks to Kaleidoblikk for the charming bookmark, it is cute!

Thanks for letting me be a part of your birthday-bookring, stormon, and I wish you a very happy 60th birthday in 2010.

What a great book!

The story(ies) of the three generations of women in Sweden in these hard and sometime good times is really well written. You get under their skin and feel that you really know them. You walk with them through their lives and experience grief and joy.

I think that Marianne Fredriksson really captured the moments of these womens lives, and managed to convey this to the reader in an excellent way.

I'll put the book in xtra's mailbox during the weekend.

I'm really happy to be a part of your amazing 60 year birthday celebration! Tomorrow I will go out shopping for a birthday card for you.

Happy birthday, stormon!!

Oh, I'd better hurry to make the journal entry before the book arrives with nille311! It was sent in the mail yesterday.

I'm happy to have had the opportunity to read this book. I will probably check out more of Fredrikssons books later, because this book gave me a very favourable impression of her writing.

I put plastic wrapping on it, so the book will be better protected from handling and general tear and wear, and hopefully the protective bag around it will follow the book on its travels.

Happy birthday, stormon!

What a lovely book! I suppose it is even better on the original language - more local colour. If I ever see another book by Marianne Fredrikson I'll certainly read it.

I wanted to make it fast and went last Monday (8.5.) to take the book personally to TJ2'a address (which is near my daily paths), but alas! The street doors were locked, nobody answered TJ2's doorbell and nobody came out of the door while I was standing in front of the house. So I walked to the post office some 500 meters away and posted the book instead. I wonder how long it will take the book to make that distance which I walked in ten minutes.
I did not know in advance that she lives in Helsinki or I should have asked to meet her for giving the book from hand to hand. (Maybe she is not all the time here?)
Happy birthday, Stormon!

Just a quick update:

I haven't got contact with Intrycksflikka. I would like the book move along quickly, because of the speciality of the ring :) So I've contacted Sirah who was skipped for some reason. I will mail the book to her today. Sirah and dotdot live in Helsinki, so it's possible that both of them will read the book before Intrycksflikka. I hope this is OK for stormon, and sorry Intrycksflikka for pushing you down the list!

Stormon,
Thank you for letting me to be a part of your bookring! And, Happy Birthday!
I found this book very interesting. The characters were very realistic as well as I could imagine the scenery very well. It's hard to believe that the book is fiction! Good choice for your Birthday bookring!

I enjoyed the book a lot! It was so well written,I felt like I was there and lived the lives of Hanna, Johanna and Anna. Especially I admired the descriptions of the Swedish landscape and the characters of the ladies. All of them were so strong in their own way. Wonderfully chosen book for your birthday bookring!

I´ll hand the book next to Dotdot.

I just want to say that I've kept this book more than three weeks . I'm really reading it and I like it so far. I try to be as quick as I can. I'll send the book to Intrycksflikka after I've finished with it. 


Journal Entry 26 by dotdot from Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Friday, November 03, 2006

I began reading this book a couple of times but the first chapter depressed me. Finally I got over the scene in hospital and those in Johanna's mind. I'm so glad I continued reading and didn't just send the book forward after three weeks. This book exceeded all my expectations.

It also made me a bit emotional. I can't really tell who's story touched me most. It could've been Hanna's. She was born only some years earlier than my grandparents. (Actually they were Ragnar's contemporaries.) Their generation lived trough many great changes in society and culture and dramatic events in history. There was something familiar in Hanna's general attitude also. Johanna's lonely time in hospital and Anna's visits there felt so true to me that reading was almost unbearable at times. It reminded me of my own parents and brought the fear of their future to my mind. Or perhaps I thought just of myself all the time.

To me this was more than the story of three generation of women and their families. It's impossible to separate personal histories of women from history of society, history of Sweden and Nordic Countries in this case. Hanna's Daughters dealt with matters we all have in common and yet rarely shared. Perhaps that's why I didn't even think, if characters were based on real people or not.

Thank you for sharing this great book with all of us, stormon.
And a very happy birthday!

Not really my cup of tea. I felt the book was a bit "all over the place" and found the feministic asides not at all constructive and it rather turned me off. Being a woman myself, I think we can do better for ourselves by making changes rather than just whinge about "our lot" and that this is an ageless thing.

Stormon, this birthday thing is a most wonderful idea, and I sincerely hope that the book makes it all the way!

I have been in contact with Kari-H and the book was mailed yesterday.

I loved the characters, them all for being so different but linked in little things. I don't want to tell anything else, as I could reveal something to those who are to read it, so I just say enjoy the book! And tahnx again to Stormon!

It's been quite a while since registering for the ring. I am so sorry that the aim to have it back at Stormon's birthday a year ago did not work out. I will not further ruin this wonderful idea and quickly read the book (have already started it) and pass it on to the next waiting person. Let's hope we will make this millennium :)

What a great book! Very emotional. I was reading it mostly at my train ride to and from work. Once I had to close it because I was really sad. Thank you very much for letting me read it. I am now in the process of contacting people on the list. We'll find out soon who will get it asap.
