Introduction

A haunting novel of loss, love, and human connection from the author of Astrid & Veronika

Linda Olsson's first novel, Astrid & Veronika, introduced readers to her gorgeous prose, and her extraordinary understanding of human relationships. With her second novel, she once again charts that terrain in a novel that also explores the significant impact of history on individual lives. In Sonata for Miriam, two events occur that will change composer Adam Anker's life forever. Embarking on a journey that ranges from New Zealand to Poland, and then Sweden, Anker not only uncovers his parents? true fate during World War II, but he also finally faces the consequences of an impossible choice he was forced to make twenty years before?a choice that changed the trajectory of his life.

The story of Adam Anker/Adam Lipski and the story of Cecilia Hagg told back and forth and interwoven through different countries and time periods is masterful.
