"Kim has an incredible ability to make people and environments alive only through their words. I can easily see, smell and experience the same horror that the people in the book do when they fall into a natural disaster. But in the midst of all misery there is also a beautiful description of the city of Lisbon as it may have looked before the earthquake. Kim takes you on a wonderful trip to her Lisbon. Her love of the city shines through every word. " Ingela Svensson
