This book was translated from German. Some things may not have come across as they should.
The book blurb states “A small village helps a young woman reckon with loss and love”.
In a small village in Germany, a woman wakes up to an omen. Selma has dreamed of the okapi. Someone is going to die.
While the villagers say they are not superstitious, they are acting very oddly. Seemingly getting their affairs in order. Telling folks things they have been holding on to for years.
I guess I had a problem with the translation because there were a lot of places things seemed not right.
