Pickpick

I climbed into this marvelous novel, and pulled it in after me, reading every word from the 721 pages. I mourned the end because the characters had become my family.

A tale of Finns leaving the old country for the new. An account of early 20th century logging, and later fishing in Western Washington. A labor history, with the most remarkable woman at its core. A family history told with love.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you, Mr Marlantes.

ljuliel That‘s quite a switch of topics from his other books, isn‘t it ? I have yet to read one of his. This sounds very enjoyable. 1mo
CaitlinR @ljuliel The brilliant character studies found in MATTERHORN and are also found in this novel — a loving tribute to folk like his family. 1mo
