Per Petterson’s  To Siberia is dark and lyrical.  . . . The story is told by a women of 60 looking back at the beginning of her life.  Growing up in northern Denmark, in a family of detached adults, she and and her brother, Jasper , become very close.  They spend much time together, tease each other, wonder the beach and the town,  and dream of getting away.  Their lives are interrupted by World War Two, Denmark is invaded by the Germans and their dreams disappear.
