Longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize A Blessed Child had me for the first 100 pages and then it just sort of teetered off from there The reader doesn’t actually find out why the three sisters Erika Laura and Molly stop visiting Hammarsö a tiny island in the Baltic Sea when Erika was 14 until around page 218 and even then the story refuses to confront the problem choosing instead to continue with the flashbacksThe story begins though with the eldest daughter Erika traveling to Hammarsö to visit her aging father Isak Isak has been married twice has three daughters by three different women and has had several mistresses so I originally contributed the strain in their relationship to Isak’s womanizing ways However it becomes clearer as the story progresses and the flashbacks begin that there is a bigger force at work Erika later attempts to cajole her middle sister Laura into joining her and the story switches to Laura’s flashbacks with a few repeats as Laura decides whether or not to visit the old man She in turn then attempts to get the youngest sister Molly to tag along with her and the flashbacks continue All of this leads up to real secret but don’t expect closure when it’s reveled The secret is slipped in gets under your skin and is never mentioned againUllman’s writing contains some lovely descriptions and phrase but as darkness seeps in this beauty is lost I felt pretty cold when I finished A Blessed Child not to mention unfulfilled There’s no resolution; the meandering just continues

Sommeren og det skal gå mer enn tjuefem år før søstrene vender tilbake til øya denne gangen for å besøke sin gamle farEt velsignet barn utspiller seg i spenningsfeltene mellom skyld og forsoning mellom erindring og glemsel og er en roman med kraftige understrømmer av rå sensualisme og vold Individuelle livsløp virvles sammen til skjøre fellesskap der nesten hvem som helst kan falle utenfor bli utstøtt og forfulgt Et velsignet barn er en rik. It does feel like a meditative Swedish movie The language and imagery are hushed from massive snowfall but merciless in their dissection of how this distant father has caused this massive trauma in the family The Molly chapters are slightly weaker than the Erika and Laura ones and lean a little too hard into the narrative about Ragnar which wraps the book up slightly too neatly; I would have preferred not knowing what happened to him or some vague suggestion of how things went wrong Still the ending is not bad just not uite as strong as the two thirds of the book

What does the author mean by and he was Isak's heel referring to Ragnar Glad the story comes full circle back to Erika and the snowy night Liked the sister's adult stories and some of the island stories but the other island girls and the way Erika was when with themwere just too horrible for words mean manipulative self centered flippant cruel
