I love to listen to books in the language in which they were written, but for me, that's only possible in English and German. Petra Durst-Benning is developing a little bit of a reputation as a novelist here in the United States (something she has wanted since she was a child apparently), but I have "read" her primarily in German. These are stories that are related to other novels of hers such as DIE GLASBLÄSERIN and DIE SAMENHÄNDLERIN, THE GLASSBLOWER and THE SEED HANDLER (I don't believe the second has been translated yet, but it's wonderful). Sometimes it's the same characters, and sometimes it's just related stories set in a different time.
I loved getting to revisit those previous novels in a new and different way.
I loved the story of the woman and her seed business best.
If you can, try it.
