If you knew that you would experience significant love just once in your life, would you want these years at the beginning, or at the end This is the luminous epic of a bicultural family filled with passion and aspirations, tragedy and redemption.. A viral Book The Vision of Emma Blau Ursula Hegi is magnificent! The way she captures the emotions and inner motivations that lead to the consequences and reactions of the characters is so realistic it transforms the reader. We learn about each character through their own narrative, in their own time, as this story spans generations of a German-American family from 1909 until very nearly the present. I was most taken with the amazing transition from descriptive narrative and dialogue into the unspoken thoughts of the character, revealing their innermost secret selves in sequences of painful beauty. The most profound response this book evoked for me was that not only our actions and words but also our thoughts have consequences in life. You can hold so tight to what you think is right, that you can't see its destructive force. And there are wrongs that can never be erased or forgotten, even if they are forgiven. And being a parent is scary hard!
