Things that Fall from the Sky
Selja Ahava ★★★★★
This novel took my breath away!!
I absolutely adored the emotional storyline and the abundant frame narrative, which highlights the diverse and contrasting emotions of each character.
Saara, the youngest protagonist, is engaging, and her child-like thoughts and challenges evoke sadness, sympathy, and wonder. Her and her family's hardships, resilience, and rebound are inspiring to read about and Saara's story grips you until the end. I found myself hooked from the beginning and read the entire novel in a single sitting.
I would recommend Ahava's novel to readers looking for an emotional and engaging story, which overflows with emotion, thought-provoking ideas and feelings, and well-written prose.
