Girls’ Kisses and Devil Food Cake
During breakfast on a totally ordinary Tuesday, Fie´s husband abruptly tells her that he wants a divorce and tells her to move out. He is a dentist, and for years Fie has as well as being his wife been his faithful assistant - without pay. Now she is banished to an both impractical and uncharming attic apartment on the other side of the city. Dazed and in despair that her life has been turned up-side down, Fie tries to soften the blow with sedatives. Her grown up son is embarrased about his mother break down and does not answer his phone.
Fie´s sister Sara is the one who takes charge in the situation and demand that Fie get a grip of the situation. To speed things up, she gives Fie a challenging Christmas Calendar with new tasks every day leading up to Christmas. And with this, despair turns into an adventurous, at times overwhelming but in the end pretty nice advent after all!
The Christmas Calendar is a charming and touching Christmas book from the Norwegian queen of feelgood!
