'The Englishman' by Helena Halme is a love story, simply told. The style of writing appears to be without artifice. It is easy to believe that Kaisa's story closely reflects the author's own experience of long-distance love and cross-cultural courtship, despite the usual caveat added at the end asserting that the all the characters are fictitious. If it really is fiction, then the writer has been skilful in creating a story which reads as though it's written by the alter ego of the naïve heroine herself.Read more ›
I would highly recommend it, Helena Halme is a very talented writer who bares her soul, allowing you more than just a glimpse into one of the most romantic stories that I know.
Our young heroine, Kaisa, a Finnish student is superbly brought to life with great detail, and the cultural differences between the Baltic country of Finland and Britain are interesting to note. I visited Finland during a Baltic cruise a couple of years ago and until then I hadn't realised how close in proximity the Nordic countries were to Russia. The joy and anguish that Kais suffers as she waits for a letter or a phone call from Peter, her Englishman, together with her fears and confusion are vividly portrayed and the tense situation she faces with her fiancé Matti ,who doesn't want to let her go, and that of his overbearing mother are all too believable. We are privy to every detail of Kaisa's daily life during her love affair with Peter and the problems that her difficult relationship with her father brings.
This was a very engaging and charming romantic story and you could well believe that it is based on true events. It felt extremely personal to read - almost as if I were reading Kaisa's diary.
