This charming epistolary novel tells the story of Tina Hopgood, a farmer’s wife in England, and Anders Larsen, a recently widowed museum curator in Denmark. Tina writes to his museum of her curiosity about and desire to see the Tollund Man, a naturally mummified body dug out of a bog in Denmark. Her interest in the Tollund Man goes back to her school days. Anders writes back, and the two soon fall into an easy friendship by letter, later email, where they share the details of their lives, families, hopes, and tragedies. A wonderful listen.
