Description
 
The Dancing Finn by Ruth Jutila Chamberlin.  

Finnish silence is one thing, but the silence in Kik Halonen's house is poison.  Orphaned as infants, Kik and her sister, Liisa, were taken in by their icy Halonen grandparents and grew up in northern Minnesota without knowing much about their parents or even the people who raised them.  In college, Kik applies for a study in Finland.  The purpose was to learn the language; what she finds, however, unravels family secrets and breaches the silence that has enveloped her life.  Eloquently and evocatively written, intricately woven, this is a must-read for Finnish Americans.
