North of Boston by Elisabeth Elo

North of BostonNorth of Boston by Elisabeth Elo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had many mini stories within the larger work. Perio's mother committed suicide when she was young and was the owner of a perfume company, which Perio now works in. Her father remarried years before.

When the story opens, Perio has been on a fishing boat that had been rammed by a larger boat. The owner of the boat had apparently drowned but Perio managed to survive, which was a miracle in the very frigid waters.

She has a good friend, Tomassina, who has a son Noah who is also the son the the fisherman that drowned.

We also touched on whale cruelty and I thought it was absolutely amazing how this author was able to bring all these topics together and make sense, and be very entertaining and also informative.

A thoroughly enjoyable read.
