Tina Hopgood lives on a farm in England with her family and strikes up an email correspondence with Professor Anders Larsen in Denmark. The two exchange letters, then emails that touch on a plethora of important topics beyond history and societal changes, to include their insights on families, personal growth and dreams.
Similar in style to 84 Charing Cross Road, Meet Me at the Museum's narrative is comprised of letters between the two characters. The conversation springboards from Hopgood's desire to visit the Tollund Man in Denmark, and blossoms into a beautiful conversation about culture, history and family values, while their relationship flowers into a a nurturing friendship that helps one another through difficult times.
A lovely, heartwarming short novel that will delight lovers of books, writing and reading letters.
According to Wikipeia, the Tollund Man is: a naturally mummified corpse of a man who lived during the 4th century BCE, during the period characterised in Scandinavia as the Pre-Roman Iron Age. He was found in 1950, preserved as a bog body, on the Jutland peninsula, in Denmark.
