    Samuel August in Sevedstorp and Hanna i Hult

    1975

    “This is a love story with more love than I’ve ever read about in books.” Astrid Lindgren is referring to her parents, Samuel August and Hanna. She also tells about her childhood in Småland in a bygone era and about the fairytales she heard in Kristin’s kitchen. Her book ends the way it began – with a love story. It is almost as beautiful and touching as the one about Samuel August in Sevedstorp and Hanna from Hult, but this time it’s about Luise Mejer och Heinrich Christian Boie who lived in Germany in the 18th Century.
