About the book

'Outstanding, a sheer pleasure to read. Dunmore is a remarkable storyteller' Daily Mail ***From the author of Inside the Wave, the Costa Book of the Year 2017*** Finland, 1902, and the Russian Empire enforces a brutal policy to destroy Finland's freedom and force its people into submission. Eeva, orphaned daughter of a failed revolutionary, also battles to find her independence and identity. Destitute when her father dies, she is sent away to a country orphanage, and then employed as servant to a widowed doctor, Thomas Eklund. Slowly, Thomas falls in love with Eeva . . . but she has committed herself long ago to a boy from her childhood, Lauri, who is now caught up in Helsinki's turmoil of resistance to Russian rule. Set in dangerous, unfamiliar times which strangely echo our own, the story reveals how terrorism lies hidden within ordinary life, as rulers struggle to hold on to power. House of Orphans is a rich, brilliant story of love, history and change. 'Part love story, part tragedy . . . Dunmore on dazzling form. Everyone should read her work' Independent on Sunday 'Every character is richly drawn and makes for compelling reading ... top-quality fiction' Daily Express 'Richly ambitious . . . there isn't a dull page. A remarkable achievement' Scotsman 'Vivid and exciting' Observer
