The writing is beautiful and it flows from words to words. But to me, the flow was too slow. The author gave too much description on every aspects, which actually makes the story alive in my imagination. But as it was too slow and everything was explained too detail, there were times I felt bored - I just wanted to know the progress of the story and not how every sun rays shine the character's cheeks.

Does a child have to carry the burdens of their parents‘ choices? Can a child free a parent of the pain and burdens they have kept as a part of their identity? Those questions came to mind as I read this interesting & unusual magical realist novel that centers around a 7 year old Ukrainian girl and the relationships with her mother & grandmother. http://marion-hill.com/book-review-111-the-woman-behind-the-waterfall-by-leonora...
