" 'Madam Courage' was so interesting contemporary history that I had to read it in one go.
The fifties and sixties in Finland were pictured so well that I started to think of my own childhood and youth.
The author has written beautifully about his wife's growing up from a child and young adult to a global citizen around the world.
'Madam Courage'is the author's beautiful recognition for his wife and valuable history for his children about their mother's Finnish roots.
My many thanks go to the author and his wife, a beautiful reading experience !"
