Every life holds so much love, happiness and sorrow.
If only we take the time to listen...

The Red Address Book, Sofia Lundberg
The readers’ favorite that’s now been sold to 28 territories!
Life is a string of meetings, each one like a pearl on a necklace. We meet and love, we part ways and reunite, we share in joy and defeat, and we have our hearts broken.
96-year-old Doris has had the same address book since 1928. The little red book holds her very own pearl necklace, the people she has met and loved throughout her life. Now Doris lives alone in an apartment in central Stockholm. Most of the names in her book are crossed over, gone from this world, and her only visitors are from the home care. Doris’ greatest source of joy are the calls from her grandniece Jenny on the other side of the Atlantic. One day Doris begins to write down the story of how she met the people that shaped her life, so that Jenny, who will be the only one to remember Doris, will be able to share her most precious possession: her memories.
