The Ash of Winter's Work
by Peter Soutowood
Two brothers, two countries, two sides of a war.
Finding their way as young men lead one brother to the Finnish army and the other to school in Leningrad, neither of which is a safe place to be on the brink of World War II.
The Winter War brings the two brothers together at a stalled convoy in the frozen north and only their love—for each other, for a woman, for Finland—can save them.
