The Finnish Girl

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

The Finnish Girl is a multi-generational story about a Finnish American family in Wisconsin and how their American dream threatens to become a nightmare. It begins with a young boy discovering his mother’s suicide and an unexpected cache of seemingly meaningless memorabilia. But behind those pieces of paper is a rich tapestry of interwoven lives—the family patriarch who emigrates from Finland to the United States to create his own future, a son who turns his back on his homeland as part of an ill-fated mission to Russia during the Depression, an elderly mother who faces deportation during McCarthy’s Red Scare era, and a young Finnish girl who cares too much about the injustices she sees. The Finnish Girl was a semi-finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition and Publishers Weekly wrote, “Melancholic, brooding, and cut-to-the-bone incisive, this is a tale to remember.”
