It's almost Christmas. Cecilia lies sick in bed as her family bustle around her to make her last Christmas as special as possible. Cecilia has cancer. An angel steps through her window. So begins a spirited and engaging series of conversations between Cecelia and her angel. As the sick girl thinks about her life and prepares for her death, she changes subtly, in herself and in her relationships with her family. Jostein Gaarder is a profoundly optimistic writer, who writes about death with wisdom, compassion and an enquiring mind. 'Through a Glass, Darkly' will not only bring comfort to the bereaved. It will move and amaze everyone who reads it.

3.5 Teraz widzimy jakby w zwierciadle
Książka jeszcze z czasów kiedy byłam nastolatką. Umieranie i odchodzenie z perspektywy dziecka. Dające do myślenia. Chyba moja ulubiona tego autora.
