Hanna's Daughters 

by Marianne Fredriksson


From Hanna's Daughters


It's always intriguing to read fiction originating from another country not your own. Such stories and novels offer alternate paths to understanding the human condition while providing opportunities to understand the mindsets of people in different cultures. If the words you read are translated from another language, you often find rhythms and turns of phrase that have little likelihood of turning up in the prose of people who use the same language with which you think. Hanna's Daughters by Marianne Fredriksson, published in her native Sweden as Anna, Hanna och Johanna, became a number one bestseller in both Sweden and Germany. It is the author's first U.S. publication, and hopes run high for bestselling status in the States.
