I am just reading th is for hte second time and think it is so well written from Adam's point of view. It is a charming story gaining an insight which helped formed ADam's experiences and character. It gives a lovely view of Inger's character too. I enjoyed Adam's reaction to having playmates and illustrating his slightly lonely childhood.
It is so sensitvely and carefully written and I aalso like the way it is howing how Ben was a caring and loving if strict father.
How about a sequel?
