About the book

All her life, Eva has tended her roses, aware of the fact that her relationship with flowers is a good deal simpler than with her family…

When she’s given a diary on her 56th birthday, she starts writing at night about a world she has done everything to forget. Her anecdotes from the West Coast are soon overshadowed by stories of her childhood and youth and her beautiful but self-centred and complicated mother, whose behaviour made Eva’s formative years into a torment.

Already at the age of seven, Eva made a decision. She was going to be a survivor. When she falls in love with an English officer she believes for a short while that a reconciliation is possible. But a final reckoning with her mother is unavoidable in the end.

Forty years later, everything is almost lost because of an unfortunate coincidence. And the old wounds, like the rose bushes, are torn open once again.

Buster’s Ears is about love, trust and deceit. A strong and shocking story of a corrosive relationship and a bitter-sweet love story.
