A wonderful memoir that shares the story of a Finnish family who, lured by promises of prosperity, immigrated to America at the turn of the century. However, this promise soon dissipates as Aino, the second youngest in the family, discovers the dark side of the American dream, as she moves from Massachusetts to the Finnish Harlem in New York City.
