Stellar review in Norrländska socialdemokraten for Alakoski’s Cotton Angel/in News, Reviews, Susanna Alakoski/by Nordin
Susanna Alakoski‘s novel Cotton Angel was published last month and is to be reviewed on Thursday. However, it has already received some fantastic pre-reviews. In Norrländska socialdemokraten we can read: Masterpiece about women who have been silenced […] Susanna Alakoski uses every word that fits in the work at the farm, all the tiresome labour that is demanded and every feeling that is hidden in the persons to give us a story that throbs, stings and aches. […] The tears are falling when I read Susanna Alakoski’s precise prose where she describes her grandmother’s life. Her musical story fills the empty space that has existed until now.

Susanna Alakoski’s highly anticipated novel Cotton Angel is finally here!
Cotton Angel the first novel in a quartet, published by Natur & Kultur, in which we will follow four generations of women – mothers and daughters in both Finland and Sweden. It’s a story about the history of working class women and about the journey a lot of families took to ensure their own survival.
Cotton Angel, tells the story of Hilda, who as a young framer’s daughter gets thrown out by her family for getting pregnant out of wedlock. Hilda has to work hard as a maid on another fram, not far from where she grew up. The cotton becomes the way out, simultaneously a blessing and a new shackle.
Cotton Angel is a powerful novel about the exposure girls endure, female friendship and the constant thirst for knowledge, a story about how the time that we live in can determine our lives far more than the choices we are able to make.
