The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson Post-Review

The Bookseller  by Cynthia Swanson        Post-Review

   A provacative and hauntingly powerful debut novel. The bookseller follows a woman in the 1960's who must reconcile her reality with the tantalizing alternative world of her dreams.

My thoughts:

This is the story of Kitty Miller who leads a single life and in her dream becomes Katharyn Andersson, the wife of Lars Andersson with a family of three children. As she gets more and more involved in her dream she is finding it hard to distinguish reality from a fantasy life. It is a different type of story that leaves you wondering from page to page, which one is the truth. It is intriguing in the fact that you want her to have both in a way, but that is not possible. I enjoyed reading it.
