Críticas

Crónica de las aventuras de una familia hippie por las tierras de Marruecos, allá en los años sesenta, a través de la mirada de una niña de cinco años. Novela autobiográfica con la que debutó su autora, hija de Lucien Freud, bisnieta de Sigmud Freud, y una de las más prometedoras novelistas inglesas

I normally love Esther Freud's writing - she's up there as one of my favourite authors - but this book was so poor compared to her other novels.

I don't know if her publishers put the squeeze on her or something, but this is such a mass market read with a cliched storyline centred around a woman forced into an Irish convent for unmarried mothers and the impact on her mother's and daughter's lives. There were none of the hallmarks of Freud's usual turn of phrase, and the storyline was horribly confused - halfway through and I still wasn't sure who was who, and from the reviews on Amazon I wasn't the only one.

2.5 stars - hugely disappointing. I hope this is not the kind of writing we're going to see from Freud going forward.

Adembenemend mooi boek over een jonge vrouw die bevalt in een klooster en haar dochter ter adoptie moet afstaan. Je leest het verhaal van drie personages: Aiophe (de moeder), Rosmalen en Katie die eigenlijk Isabelle heet. Alle drie de vrouwen hebben een intense relatie met hun man.
