(M61'12) Big Stone Gap, Adriana Trigiani i World Reading Circle (september 2012)

Anmeldelser

Bogen handler om Valentine, som arbejder i hendes bedstemors firma der laver håndlavede sko. Valentine kæmper for firmaet, for at finde hendes egen kunstneriske stemme og for kærligheden. Alle kvinderne i bogen er rigtig godt beskrevne, man lærer dem at kende. Og når bogen snakker om sko og håndværk er den virkelig interessant. Det eneste sted bogen halter lidt er i beskrivelserne af Valentine's forhold. Det er bare ikke så interessant som det andet i bogen.
