Eveliina has retreated to her grandparents’ island to get away from work and her boss. She’s looking forward to the solitude and some time to do the things she wants, not the things she must. She doesn’t know that her brother has offered the island retreat to a missionary friend as the perfect place for solitude, prayer and fasting. When Eveliina discovers she doesn’t have the island to herself as expected, the complications start multiplying. This story will draw you into the scenery and the characters as well as the plot. For me, it was a one-sitting read. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the look at Finland, a place I will probably never get to visit in any other way. But it feels like I’ve already been there. I can recommend Helsinki Sunrise without hesitation. And I can hardly wait to read Marion Ueckermann’s next story.
