Books You Can’t Put Down

The renowned Timo Kestrel trilogy sweeps you from a small Finnish village, to the wild landscape of 18th Century North America. Through this expertly told tale, our hero Finn struggles to change the things he can, to accept the things beyond his control, and of course – to find the wisdom to know the difference.
