Product Description

Similar in its successful use of epistolary form to The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Society, this lovely title tells the story of Tina Hopgood, in her 60s, in England, and the wonderful relationship she forms in a series of letters with Danish professor and curator of a museum, Anders Lars. When she was a child she was included in the dedication of a book written by the archaeologist who discovered The Tollund Man from The Iron age, in a Danish bog. Years later she writes to him, expressing her continued wish to make the trip to the museum to see the remains. However, he has passed away years ago and the curator of the museum, Anders, answers her letter with this sad news. This prompts Tina to write back explaining her connection and the basis for her interest. And so they develop a wonderful correspondence that becomes ever more important to both of them. They discuss their lives, their children, thoughts and feelings, as well as philosophical matters, love of poetry, nature, history to their mutual delight. Their friendship helps each to view the world slightly differently. Both captivating and heartwarming.
