Summary
  • During World War II, 70,000 Finnish children were shipped off to Swedish families who had agreed to shelter them for their own protection until the end of the war. This is the story of one such boy, Eero. After the death her husband, grief stricken Kirsti agrees with great reluctance to send Eero to Sweden. His surrogate parents, Signe and Hjalmar, are grieving the recent loss of a daughter. Signe is so deeply wounded that all semblance of beauty has been sapped from her life, and her relationship with Eero is fraught with tension and resentment. After a lifetime of feeling abandoned, bereft of parental love, Eero learns the secrets behind the actions of his two mothers too late
  • Uncle: The biography of a humble man, his lemon tree, chihuahua and crumpets, retold and narrated by an anonymous nephew, who strings together a collection of his uncle's passions, failings, and beliefs
