SUSANNA ALAKOSKI IS BACK WITH AN EPIC QUARTET

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.
