The Heart Keeper is the first book by Alex Dahl that I have read. Set in Norway this is a highly emotional read, dealing with the grief of a mother who has lost her daughter. I really enjoyed the story, told from the points of view of both mothers whose lives are going in completely opposite directions. It is certainly not a fast read but it is worth sticking with. The characters are realand the storyline is intriguing.
Alison is a mother in mourning. 3 months ago her daughter Amalie died in a tragic accident and she blames herself. Her marriage is falling apart and her best friend is the vodka bottle. Across town Iselin's life is finally starting to come good. Her daughter Kaia has just received a heart transplant and is finally living the life that a little girl should. These 2 women will change each other's lives.
Thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins Australia for the advanced copy of this book to read. All opinions are my own and are in no way biased.
