    I have listened and love all of the stories you have read. But this one made me weep, it was so perfectly delivered. To put it in context for your listeners who don’t know, The Summer Book is a series of stories about Sophia, who’s mother has recently died, and her grandmother, as they spend the summer on a small family island off the Finnish coast. This story, particularly, is Sophia’s way of coming to terms with the death of her mother. It’s hilarious and innocent and tragic, and you read it brilliantly.
