Paperback: $10.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Two friends, two castes, two nationalities, one escape. On the cusp of Civil War, two Karelian friends plan a daring escape, willing to risk the elements and odds in order to obtain freedom. Riista... More > Laulu, a Finnish woman of eighteen and maid to the wealthy family of her dearest friend, Aleksandr "Sascha" Mussovsky, is given an ultimatum. At the prompting of Sascha, she can join him in traversing the wintry Finnish countryside, translating for the man who speaks Russian as his first language, or can stay back in Karelia and wait for the chaos of war to engulf her small village. Choosing to follow Sascha, the man that she has loved for years, the two embark on a mission with one goal: to reach Sweden alive. Fifteen-year-old Sierra Kautiainen's second published work, Karelia is an allegory, a romance novel, and a tribute to the brave souls that dared to truly live amidst revolution and fear. Riista and Sascha are naive yet pragmatic, stubborn yet kind, and ultimately heroes that one will never forget.< Less
