The linear story-line follows the journey of Håkan, a Swedish boy who ends up alone in America and has to find his own way in life. One single, unplanned event leaves him with a fierce reputation that he can’t escape.
The book is beautifully written and whilst it didn’t have any major plot twists or intertwining story-lines, it really sucked me in!! Definitely recommend if you enjoy books that give a strong sense of landscapes, characters and daily life.
