"When Hillevi, a young, inexperienced midwife, moves from the university town of Uppsala to the wilderness of Svartvattnet (Blackwater) to be with her unofficial fiancé, she is ill prepared for what awaits her. In this frigid, austere, and isolated territory, she encounters the overwhelming and unpredictable forces of nature and demoralizing poverty and ignorance while also gaining access to the unfamiliar world of nomadic Sami reindeer herders. A single traumatic event, never fully confronted, has devastating and far-reaching repercussions, but Hillevi also finds unexpected warmth and love."--Publisher's description

Änglahusetär det hus Tora Otter lever i. Nu är det 1940-tal och ett nytt stort krig pågår i Europa och tågen med soldater far igenom Katrineholm. I staden samlar man in gåvor till Finlandshjälpen och deltar i beredskapsövningar. Men trots svåra tider anar man det spirande folkhemmet som skall ge en ny trygghet. Änglahuset är en bok om kvinnor, om Tora och svärdottern Jenny, om Frida, och hennes dotter Ingrid. Med självklar kännedom och inlevelse berättar Kerstin Ekman om deras sätt att leva, tänka och känna. I början av 70-talet påbörjade Kerstin Ekman den stora romansviten om Kvinnorna och staden. Böckerna Häxringarna, Springkällan, Änglahuset och En stad av ljus, berättar om hur staden Katrineholm växer fram i industrialiseringens Sverige. I dessa fyra romaner finns Kerstin Ekmans berömda skildringar av kvinnors arbete, som hon skriver om med humor och stor sakkunskap och inlevelse. [Elib]
