|PeggyB||Really interesting insight into Northern life and their culture. Great idea to show how they handle death from a children`s point of view!|
|Amelia Margetts||Echoing the comments appreciating death as a part of life here. I especially the exchange between Kalitelm and Alainya at the beginning--death is a hard lesson to learn.|
|Elizabeth Barrette||I like how this story shows death as a part of life, especially community life. It shows how people can work together to provide a good death, and a good memorial, without dismissing the grief that is a natural part of such proceedings.|
|Ellen Million||This is so lovely and touching - it's a wonderful look at the Northern culture!|
|Valerie Joanne Higgins||I saw the forum discussion. This brings the concepts to life beautifully and makes them real and human. I could believe that this was a memoir of real people following a cherished tradition. Lovely!|
|Lorna (Comtessa)||I loved this. The idea of sharing the bead is a simple yet perfect one. Sharing memories that will stay with people through their lives. I loved the necklace and bead descriptions and the child is adorable!|
