Maria Bouroncle will talk about her book “It came to me on a whim.”
About the book:
It is a cold Easter in the spring of 1929. Artur leaves his wife and three children alone for a few hours to go fetch firewood in the forest. When he returns, his world has collapsed. The story about Ingeborg Andersson and what happened that day in 1929 was a well-kept secret for seventy years.
The tragic family drama is now being retold by Ingeborg Andersson’s grand-niece, Maria Bouroncle. A compelling and horrifying tale that will grip true-crime fans as Bouroncle’s extensive research and tireless investigation slowly sheds light on her family’s tightly-guarded family secret.
