And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrick Backman

2019 Limelight Reviews
General Fiction

And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrick Backman is a beautiful novella. It’s beautiful to look at and it’s beautiful to hold. It’s illustrations are beautiful. And then there are the words…..

I cannot describe it better than Backman describes it himself in his introduction:

“This is a story about memories and about letting go. It’s a love letter and a slow farewell between a man and his grandson and between a dad and his boy.”

The intended audience is anyone who has had to say that slow farewell. Just beautiful…
