The new novel follows three Finnish siblings—two brothers and their sister—who emigrate to America at the turn of the 20th century, settling and coming into their own in a logging community in Washington state. Marlantes masterfully weaves a story of family, of immigration, of a region of our country carving out an identity.
Marlantes, a native of Oregon now living in rural Washington, discusses his vivid family chronicle in an event co-presented by Rainy Day Books.
