Here’s a review of Lost Ground from the Historical Novel Society. Much appreciated. All comments and opinions are welcome.
Lost Ground is a new novel by Ulla Jordan. The eyes of the world are on Finland in November 1939, as its Winter War with Russia turns into a classic David and Goliath struggle. When Tom Henderson, a North American journalist, goes to Finland to cover the war he has no idea how far the assignment will take him. His relationships with Tina, a young Finnish woman, and Paul, her fiancé fighting at the front, escalate quickly and change all their lives. The backdrop for these stories is a tiny nation’s struggle for survival against massive odds.
