Finland tells a story that is new, heartbreaking and normal. While it is totally the story of a singular family, mother and son, it's also full of truths and humor that any reader will relate to. It's unflinching: What person doesn't quail when they don't feel compassion returned from someone they love? But it's also hilarious: Who hasn't fought to hold back political advice when they think a person can be swayed..? And let's not forget heartfelt: I couldn't stop rooting for David because his mother never does. Every scene is quick and readable and above all meaningful... I actually marked up my copy with smiley-faced emoticons shedding happy tears.
