Selected by Indie Booksellers for the April 2010 Indie Next List
“Translated from Finnish, this winner of Finland's top literary prizes is the story of Aliide, an Estonian peasant who survived the Soviet occupation, only to face the brutal realities of a post-occupation world when her sister's granddaughter shows up half-conscious in her yard. Powerful writing and exacting sense of place make this book stand out.”
-- Claire Benedict, Bear Pond Books of Montpelier, Montpelier, VT


Description
The winner of Finland's two most prestigious literary awards--the Finlandia and the Runeberg--"Purge" is a breathtakingly suspenseful tale of two women dogged by their own shameful past and the dark, unspoken history that binds them.
