Description

A moving ghost story that explores the overcoming of loss, and how to move on Thomasine has spent months living in her great-great-aunt's dusty, dark house with her father, and her aunt, uncle and cousins. While her father's siblings bicker about how much the house must be worth, her distant, elderly aunt is upstairs, dying, and her father has disappeared inside himself, still mourning the death of Thomasine's little brother. But one day, her youngest cousin makes a discovery: a wardrobe, filled with all the mirrors missing from the big house. And through the mirrors, a different world - one in which you can find not what you most wish for, but perhaps what you most need...A beautiful tale of love, grief and growing up, A House Without Mirrors is an unforgettable adventure into families and the power of love. `A classic story that has it all` Dagens Nyheter (leading Swedish national newspaper) and a haunting, magical tale of enchantment and broken family relationships, that will be loved by anyone who remembers Lucy M. Boston's Green Knowe books. Includes 20 specially commissioned full-page black & white illustrations by Moa Schulmanshow more

Review quote

"A House Without Mirrorsis perhaps one of the most beautiful books I have read this year. . . The translation is well done and manages to bring across the poignancy of the novel. . . The book presents a wonderful opportunity to learn about different cultures and different ways of thinking and being. But at the same time, it also unites people through the emotions that are common to all." --"The Book Wars" "A classic story that has it all." --"Dagens Nyheter""show more
