After reading this book I was left with a feeling of incompleteness. This book is a description of the search for the identity of a woman who wrote down her deepest feelings regarding the untimely death of her son. A quest, nothing more, nothing less.
The search itself, despair, glimpses of hope, walls that Liebreich ran into is written well, the book just didn't catch me as I thought it would.
Wondering if Liebreich managed to let go, to see the quest as finished and finally let the bottle drift the oceans again? Or did she start over again, hoping that there's still one tiny little clue that she had overseen at first...
Just curious: did the author of the letter (ever) come forward? ( )
