Book: Everyone Wants to Go Home. No One Wants to Go Back.

This is Norwegian author Helga Flatland's second novel, and I think it's even better than the first one:  Stay if You  Can. Leave if You Must. 
It's a sequel, but it's not a "what happens next" kind of book. Instead it digs deeper, and we get to know more abut the characters we met in the first book.
It's about heavy grief, personal tragedy and relationships, and I'm again in awe of this young author, who is able to describe these things so wonderfully. In addition to the plot and the characters, it's a beautiful picture of Norway. A very good novel!
