Lars Thorvald is a chef who loves his wife and his newborn baby, Eva. Soon after Eva's birth, his wife decides that she was not meant to be a mother and she leaves for California.
What a sweet, sweet summer read. It actually reads more like a series of short stories each told from a different character's point of view, but the story is cohesive. A bittersweet but delightful book makes for an easy and just-thoughtful-enough end of summer reading choice.
