Min Farmors Eventyr aka My Grandmother’s Adventure

I have finished a short book on my grandmother, like a trailer for a movie. I have written it in Danish and will expand on her story in Danish. I have decided to write her story in Danish first before I write it in English.

This summer I went to a cousin’s reunion in Denmark; all cousins on my father’s side, so grandchildren of my paternal grandmother. My father had three sisters and they had mostly boys, only one girl. All together we are fifteen grandchildren of my grandmother: eleven boys and four girls (my father had three girls and two boys).

I was inspired by more stories about grandmother from my cousins.
