Second part in the series - The Island of Secrets.

Stella's summer plans unravel in a surprising way when someone states in their will that she and her son will be allowed to live for two weeks in a cabin on the idyllic island of Ven. But it is not clear why or whose will it is.

It soon turns out that others have received the same message: newly divorced Ossian who needs to find new goals in life and the artist Monika who fled abroad many years ago.

At the same time, island resident Bea helps her friend Klas with his mother's estate. Among the things they find written down wishes, things the mother secretly wanted to experience, and with each find they come one step closer to the revelation that will dramatically change the lives of several people. It will be a different summer at Ven.

Reviews on part 1 in the series : 


"Friendship, warmth, compassion and glimpses of humor characterize the relationships and contribute to the hope for a better future that rounds off the story. This is a warm and exciting relationship novel with excellent environmental descriptions and good language. 5 out of 5 ”BTJ library services  no. 10, lecturer Helene Ehriander


"A book that touches, a book about relationships that rub, about not daring to lift the lid and really feel all those troublesome feelings. Let Me Tell You Everything has a rich gallery of characters and the women in the story make an inner and outer journey that can inspire others to dare to feel, achieve change, break patterns and go their own way" - Ellinor Wikman, author
