Discovering My Suomi Roots

By Paul J Korhonen

Biography & memoir | Paperback, eBook


Just when you think there are no more surprises in life something comes along to completely turn it upside down! That’s exactly what happened to the author in this instance. He tells the story of how his answer to a simple question took him on an emotional journey of self-discovery and led him to ask countless questions over the months ahead. He reflects back on his life, which has more than its fair share of twists and turns, as he endeavours to trace his origins. Born in the north-east of England, the story centres on growing up in his home town of Blyth. We follow him through into adulthood and eventually retirement. Just when you would expect things to slow down, the pace picks up as he closes in on his Suomi roots which takes him on an unexpected journey to Finland to finally come face-to-face with his origins.
