Originally published in 1951, this novel tells of a young girl living with her deeply religious grandparents in pre-war Vyborg--before it became part of the Soviet Union. Leena hates school, loves music and rain, and wanders through the town in a state of childish enchantment. "Like a spruce cone, a child falls into a world where logical disorder replaces magical order, and there you are―in trouble, we'll agree." The world she inhabits features multiple layers of reality, and this is reflected in the novel's artful narrative: life and death are reflections of each other, and reality is merely a map of the individual's inner world. Through the naive perspective of a young girl, the book addresses deep philosophical concerns in simple, lucid prose.
