It is a wonderful book of a young boy’s life during the war times and life after the war. There was turbulence and peace. The boy was sent to Sweden as so many other youngsters experienced. It is an uplifting and refreshing story. Finally at age eight, he arrived home to his mother sister and brother, in Hameenlinna Finland. He had endured good and hard times. At age seventeen he received a ‘MIRACLE’ invitation to America –the land of opportunity- which he embraced with vigor. Eventually he became a successful business man.

The book has received great reviews from individuals across the country and from several book signing events.

The book consists of just about 300 pages, soft cover and a beautiful Finnish cover page.
