Publisher's Summary

Linda Olsson's Astrid & Veronika became a New York Times best-seller and an international phenomenon. With Sonata for Miriam, Olsson further explores themes of loss and redemption.

After the unexpected death of his daughter, musician Adam Anker loses all sense of direction in his life. Adrift, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery, one that will take him from New Zealand, to Poland, and finally to Sweden for a reunion with his daughter's mother.

    "treacle, sickly sweet"

    This book was a real disappointment. I'm not even sure why it was recommended; I certainly will be more careful in the future.
    The problem is the self-consciousness of the writer, and her inability to edit her own thoughts, so that every voice is the same one, the protagonist, the Polish characters, the errant wife - every one of them is infused with saintly values, maudlin self-absorption and overly verbose sentimentality. Yuck!
