‘Themes of motherhood, lost identity and the past have resonance and relevance … The tremulous, delicate process of friendship is beautifully handled’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘A poignant, beautifully written book’ THE LADY

Inge is tall and cool and Mira is petite and dynamic. When they meet, each is attracted by something special and different about the other. But friendships based on the attraction of opposites can be stormy, and theirs is no exception.

Blonde Inge is a native of Sweden, while dark Mira has fled there to escape the living hell of Chile at the time of the military coup led by General Pinochet. They are brought together by their mutual love of plants, but this gentle pastime is soon overshadowed by the terrible legacy of Mira’s past. It is a legacy that will reach out to touch many lives, including those of Inge and Mira’s children.

Written with sympathy and insight and sparkling with unexpected humour, INGE & MIRA is a deeply moving tale of lives haunted by past violence.

IRISH EXAMINER
Fredriksson is that rare individual, the born storyteller. Add to that the fact that she seems to be able to get under the skin of any one of her female characters and you get a talent more precious than rubies
BIRMINGHAM POST
Fredriksson's knack for connecting with her characters creates a gentle and subtly nuanced portrait of growing friendship and understanding
