Disclaimer: Norwegian book again; the title translation is all my work.
Av lys er du kommet / From Light You’ve Been Made is a book written by Britt Karin Larsen, and was published in 2017.
The story is being told by an elderly lady that reflects back on her life, being raised by foster parents, and finding her place in the world. At the same time we follow her journey through finding her real family.
This book took me forever to read… I’ve seen that it’s gotten great reviews by others, but I’m unfortunately not one of them. The language and composition is alright, but it seems like the main character has been depressed all her life, and no one around her cares about it. It’s all too monotone for me, I’m afraid. I do however love the title.
