The reason it didn't click until now is that the title is something completely different in Swedish (Five Black Chicken).
I am so thrilled to revisit this story again, this time in book form!
And it is definitely in the right category! Even though there is a lot more in it, the romance is the foundation of the book!
Loved the old movie - loved the Tv series - love the book (so far)!
I really liked that BBC mini series. I am glad that I read the book, as there were many aspects in the book that did not make it into the production for television. Unfortunately most of those were things that I disliked. Looking forward to the discussion.
