Hanna's Daughters - Marianne Fredriksson

I can appreciate the craft that went into this novel, but I couldn't quite immerse myself fully in the story. There were places that I found quite fascinating - as Hanna's and Johanna's stories were unfolding, I was fully engaged. However, the sections of the novel that took place in the present never quite connected with me - the story felt like it lost momentum, and therefore lost my interest. It was a great idea that didn't live up to it's potential.
