Set in Norway in the mid-nineteenth century, Dina’s Book presents a beautiful, eccentric, and tempestuous heroine who carries a terrible burden: at the age of five she accidentally caused her mother’s death. Blamed by her father and banished to a farm, she grows up untamed and untaught. No one leads the child through her grief, and the accident remains a gruesome riddle of death, with Dina left haunted by the vindictive spirit of her mother. When her father agrees to take her back after several years, his efforts to cultivate her have little lasting effect.

What made the experience of listening to Dina's Book the most enjoyable?

I like to read and listen at the same time, having the audible makes it so easy for me to listen and read. I have vision problems and this really helps. The book is very very good. Kindle can deliver everything I love. This story is also on DVD.
