Finland, 1809. Henrik and Erik are brothers who fought on opposite sides in the war between Sweden and Russia. With peace declared, they both return to their snowed-in farm. But who is the master? Sexual tensions, old grudges, family secrets: all come to a head in this dark and gripping saga. ------- Why Peirene chose to publish this book: 'This is a historical novel in miniature form. It deals in dark passions and delivers as many twists as a 500-page epic. And if that were not enough, each character speaks in a distinct voice and expresses a unique take on reality. I'm thrilled to be publishing a book that is as Finnish as a forest in winter - but that resembles a work from the American South: William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.' Meike Ziervogel, Publisher

A brooding, atmospheric, Scandinavian late night movie.' Brandon Robshaw, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY ------- 'A heart-stoppingly intense historical novel of grand scope.' WHITE REVIEW ------- 'This short, intense novel examines concepts of home, inheritance and the connection between personal and international conflict.' Max Liu, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
